Paragliding from the Prom

Paragliding from the Prom

I reached back into the archives for this picture for A Word In Your Ear’s latest Word A Week challenge: float.

Every weekend, paragliders line up to jump off the cliffs next to the parque del amor on the malecón in Miraflores, Lima. The placid ocean as it rolls into the bay, and the background of the cerro and Chorrillos make it a spectacular spot to spend a while people-watching and enjoying the sun.

Word A Week – Float

On holiday in the winter of 2013 we took a swoop by the floating Uros islands, near Puno on the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca, and a day at the excellent Museo Larco in Pueblo Libre, Lima. Not only does the museum display a collection of ceramics from an impressive array of pre-Colombian Peruvian cultures, but they keep their non-display collection open to the public as well. If only more museums would follow suit.
