There something missing, but it's so gorgeous... The pilasters, parapet and cornices look like they were painted yesterday, though.

Will they add a roof later, or did you ask them to remove it for a second?

Wonderful! I see the light is really lovely there. Clear, dry air - beautiful!

Thank you so much for joining me in enjoying this view. A number of buildings in this part of Lima are being restored. This particular view fascinated me: the beautiful woodwork, the lovely shade of blue, the afternoon sunlight, and ... so unexpected! ... the sky!!

This one's for you dear Marylin. I wouldn't have got the idea otherwise...
