Barranco is, together with Miraflores, my favorite “distrito”, district of Lima, and my Instagram every time I visit definitely doesn’t hide that.
I love how fast I can capture the world with my phone. I only bring my camera to big occasions (for sure not to work or the lake) but my phone is always with me and ready to photograph.
I’ve recently set aside for a while the VSCO app with which I usually edit all my photos and started using the app HUJI that brings a cool vintage touch. I love the light effects and the date on the photos, it brings me back to my parents’ film camera and photos by the beach.

Lima is always wonderful, even when it’s grey (90% of the times then), but Summer gives this city a special touch. Walking down the malecón, eating ceviche and sipping chilcanos with friends, going to Barranco and admiring a sunset disappear on the ocean are activities I cannot miss when visiting La Ciudad de los Reyes.
I’m writing from one of the few coffee shops open on a Sunday and, needless to say, it’s packed. It’s pouring outside and from my seat I can see people running with and without umbrellas to arrive quickly home. Others try to shelter here but there’s no space. I guess people inside – me included – aren’t going anywhere in a while.
