El Parque de Las Leyendas

After meeting for a cup of coffee, my friend Sonia suggested a trip to El Parque de Las Leyendas in Lima. It seemed like a good idea. Although it was a cloudy day, the temperature was not too bad for an afternoon outdoors.

The park is a combination of a zoo, botanical gardens and an archaeological site.

There is plenty there to keep the kids entertained for people on a family day out.

There was even enough to keep me occupied for a few hours.

If you like big cuddly animals. There are plenty to see here.

From a safe distance of course. And from the other side of the fence.

Except where there is no fence and the animals like to get up close and personal.

Fortunately this lovely creature cannot get too close.

I get the feeling we are being watched.

What do you think they are going to keep in there when it is finished?
