1.- Finding Salteñas: They are similar to the empanadas, but the bread is sweet. The empanadas are common in the whole continent, but Salteñas are from Bolivia and I haven't seen them here YET. We tried them in a supermarket. They were good but not as good as in Bolivia. Well, I remembered once I was driving and saw a small place with the Bolivian flag and it said Salteñas on the wall, so there we went. It was in another area of Lima, but we had to try them, hahaha. The place was small and cozy. Christian taught me the way to eat the Salteñas. They are juicy inside and if you want just bite them, you will need a bib, hahah.
2.- Open Market: Christian was wondering if there was any open market in Lima. He hasn't seen anyone. Well, maybe because he was in the wrong area. Anyway, after our delicious snack/lunch I suggested him to go to one of my favorite open markets in the city. I used to live near it and know that, hahaha. Don't need to ask it twice and we were already in our way to the market. After parking we started our tour around the market. Magdalena market is big and it used to be a bit chaotic, but right now it's so organized.
After walking around there for a while we drove back to Miraflores area, time to chill out...
