Regardless of our plans for the day, at some point we find ourselves in the Plaza De Armas. It is a great place to sit and people watch and catch a few rays (if possible).
We may be lucky enough to hear some music, see some dancing or just relax and tell the people selling their fake Raybans, peruvian jewellery, toy alpacas and those wanting to shine our shoes that we are just not interested.
And of course not far from the plaza there are many great stores to browse and wonderful places to grab a bite to eat and drink.
It really is the hub of the town with foreigners and locals taking time out of their day to sit and watch life go by - even if only for a brief moment.
