Lima Street Scenes

Lima is divided into districts. We live in the La Molina District. Every Friday we go by taxi to the North Mission which is in Los Olivos. We pass by Lima Central or the Old City. The picture in the middle is a typical scene--the square, boxy homes, many 10x10, some quite colorful, others quite colorless. When the homeowners want to add a story, they build another box. Most staircases are on the outside of the building. Often there are clothes hanging on lines outside on the roof which is an added story with walls but no roof.
