Picture of the day: "Hello, is it open?"

The first impression after walking the streets of Lima is that one is not sure if the stores are open or closed. Because of the usual crime this is what most small businesses have at any time of the day.

Pharmacies, cyber cafes, laundries, small supermarkets; Almost all shops have their bars on and one has to greet and ask for things with the shadow of the bars on his face. At first it is a strange sensation that automatically activates the security alarm in your subconscious.

Also try to bring change because in a few places they accept a ticket higher than 20 soles for small purchases. A useful tip is to get money from the cashier (they always give you 50 or 100 bills) and automatically enter the bank's branch and ask for change.

Probably the bars do not help those tourists who do not speak the language too much. You have to order the products behind bars and without the art of seeing or pointing out the products you can encounter small linguistic difficulties.
