VIDEO: First Impressions of Lima

After catching up on some much-needed sleep after our eight-hour flight, we were off to explore Lima, Peru. Where we are staying, in the Miraflores area, is one of the most desirable parts of the city. Within a short walking distance, we found ourselves visiting Larcomar shopping center situated against a cliff overlooking the ocean. From scenic views to people watching it was a place we could relax and acquaint ourselves with Lima. With paragliders soaring above us, we felt somewhat inspired to potentially try this ourselves one of these days.

Aside from the paragliding, it was just nice to be wearing shorts and t-shirts for the first time in 2015. We would have filmed more of the parks, people and landmarks, however, our camera battery died. This whole travel thing isn’t as easy at looks and we’re admittedly rather rusty these days.

Video Script:

So first full day in Lima. We got in last night at like 2am and we got some rest, so this morning we are out exploring. We’re actually staying in the neighborhood of Miraflores so we’re just going for a walk and we’re going to show you some of the parks, the beach and it is so nice to be getting some sunshine guys. After that brutal Canadian winter this is bliss.

Now talk about a change. I’m actually wearing shorts and t-shirts for the first time in 2015. Oooh, show us the outfit. Woo Hoo!

So we’re noticing some amazing paragliding. These paragliders are just going right out over these tall buildings and then going right out over the ocean. It looks fantastic. Neither of us have done paragliding so far in our lives but we may just be tempted to give it a shot.

So right now we are visiting Larcomar which is like a shopping center that sits right over the cliff overlooking the sea. It’s a pretty good location.

And then our camera battery died because we forgot to charge it, so that is all we can show you today. But we will be exploring more of the neighborhood in the days to come, so stay posted for that.
