Lima, Plaza de Armas

by | Sep 15, 2009 | Travel

After lunch, we grabbed a cab and headed over to the Museo de Oro (Gold Museum) for a look at an amazing display of weapons. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but an entire room filled with swords was a surprise.

We weren’t allowed to take photos at the Gold Museum, but suffice it to say that they have a ton of knifes, ammo and guns in that place. Not unlike some of the security guards in from the the Governor’s Mansion in Lima’s Plaza de Armas…

The light was lovely for another 10 minutes, so I rushed around the square taking as many photos as possible before it got too dark.

And finally, here’s a brief video of our 30 minute cab ride to the airport around 6pm. It was like this the whole way.
