Lima, Peru…discovering its beautiful streets, colors and shapes!

A few days ago I happened to travel to Lima for my frist time. What an amazing city with colorful streets, beautiful architecture and impressively clean! I can’t wait to come back, which should be very soon :)

and an amazing statue story! What you see right in front is a statue of a greek goddess or something like that, which was commissioned to some sculptor (I’m sometimes not so good at remembering exact names but I got the main point that I’m going to tell) who was told to put a “llama’ on her head! “llama” is the spanish translation for flame, but it is also spelled the same way for the animal. The commission meant for the sculptor to put a flame on the goddess head, BUT the guy thought they meant the animal, and that’s what he put on the goddess head, a Llama. [From the picture you can’t really tell but when you come to Lima check out this place, Plaza San Martin] :)
