LIMA


FROM LEFT: Plaza de Armas, Centro Historico; one of many simple eateries at Surquillo Market; ceviche at Surquillo Market, which also sells a dazzling array of fruit and vegetables, dry goods, meat, poultry and spices


IN LIMA 24 hours


8AM PARQUE EL OLIVAR Spanish colonists laid out olive groves that still flourish in San Isidro’s beloved and tranquil public park. In addition to the trees — which merit your sincere admiration — El Olivar is great for jogging, strolling or just plain meditation. Lima’s misty climate is part of the fun, swathing specimens in romance, tempting you to stray. All around lies a gracious, old-money neighbourhood and its swank, pseudo-baronial architecture.


9AM SURQUILLO MARKET Across a hellacious expressway from Miraflores (once an Inca road to the sea) lies this traditional market. A scrappy, much-loved, happy hunting ground for top restaurateurs, it’s filled with tropical produce you’ve got to try, plus head-still-on butchery. Vociferous lady fishmongers tend counters at its rear, serving up half-a-dozen ceviche varieties plus yummy fillets cooked as you like them; generous portions of off-colour humour and questions about your foreign provenance served on the side.


11AM PACHACAMAC The 40-minute trip south from Barranco is worth the hassle to reach the Pachacamac archaeological site: the ruins of a city variously occupied by Lima, Wuri, Ychma and Inca peoples aſter AD 200. Traditionally home to an oracle, it attracted pilgrims from all over the Andean region and reached its zenith just before the Spaniards hit in 1533. Remains from stunning courts, palaces and pyramids attest to antique greatness and punctuate the now-silent, otherworldly desert surrounding it. pachacamac.cultura.pe


12PM CHIFA WA LOK Start out before lunch and gird your loins for a dive deep into Lima’s Barrio Chino, a frenetic and congested Chinatown. Sweat not the queue — tables turn fast — then settle in for mass portions of the Chinese comforts locals crave, especially much-adored chaufa fried rice. Or slog through the bible-like menu for every possible Sino-Peruvian veggie, pork, beef, chicken, duck or seafood iteration. Good local beer is available, but almost everyone will be drinking a sugar-shock, sunshine- yellow Inca Kola. walok.com.pe
