The first signs of winter in Lima have arrived. For at least six months clouds move in and rob the buildings along the coast of their ocean views. The sky turns a greyish-white. The Limeños say the color is like that of a donkey’s belly. The expression makes me laugh. The sun shines above the clouds, but we don’t see it here in the city. The two biggest surprises Lima has given my friends and family? 1) That it gets cold and cloudy (But it’s always sunny in tropical Peru, right?) 2) That the city is in the middle of a giant desert
