Lima: Perpetual Cloud Cover

Having spent our first week or so in Peru up in the mountains, it was easy to forget that it was winter time down there. During the day, the sun shone and temperatures got to the 60s. When we landed in Lima, closer to sea level, we encountered an entirely new weather pattern. It wasn’t the cold, snowy winter we (usually) know at home, but there was a chill in the air and we didn’t see the sun at all over the four or five days we were there. At all.
We read that it’s like that for most of the year, but it’s remarkable being right on the coast of the Pacific with a huge cliffside park across from the beach going for miles and miles and not seeing the sun once. I can’t imagine how gorgeous it must be on a sunny summer day.
