Wow. First time I've seen Lima this wet. I guess it does rain here once in a blue moon.

Here's something to brighten up your day:

Don't worry, it's safe. Just some guy singing. :mrgreen:

Good, it cleans the streets of Lima.

Here in Tarapoto, it has been raing a lot in the last few days. That's very good because it lowers the temperatura to around 27 degrees. In the last few months it almost hasn't been raining at all and the temperature has been hoovering around 36 degrees.

Ariel, welcome to the Lima wet season. It's not that it rains once in a while, it is just so damp and drizzly, and a lack of appropriate drainage that it just puddles up all over. And it will be like this until October. Yay! :roll:

Chichi, it does not "clean" Lima, it makes matters worse...
Regards,

Argidd

Why we prefer the North.. Hate the mold and dampness of Lima. Not really cold temperature-wise , but it does chill your bones.

In January, I visited several new appartment building in Lima. I was thinking about bying a flat in Lima as an investment and noticed that in many of the new building they put carpet in the bedrooms. (bah)

Miraflores has a lot of humidity, San Borja, La Molina are OK, there is the carpet, mostly in bedrooms.
