Cat park Kennedy Lima Peru

Kennedy cat park in Lima. Stray cats are found in this park right in the middle of Lima, Peru at Parque Kennedy. People from all over Lima come to relax at this park, read a book, chat with friends or just play with the friendly stray cats of the parque Kennedy.

This park is named after the American president John F. Kennedy. But, for many cat lovers this park is the best park in the world. For others, they feel there should not be as many cats wondering around right in the middle of the city.

Cats in Parque Kennedy are so used to people that they don’t care to take a nap right in the middle of the park where people walk by. Some cats appeared to be dead, but they were just napping right in the middle of the park. For cat lovers this is paradise. This park is located right in the middle of downtown lima is accessible by all forms of transportation.

Come visit Lima whenever you’re in Peru. You will enjoy fantastic food, colonial architecture and great hospitality. I was in Lima about two years ago on my way to coffee farms in Quillabamba. Whenever you’re in Lima you must try fresh food at the city mercados. Share a table with a stranger and chat about anything from politics to sports and traveling.

Contact me if you have questions about Peruvian coffee and/or traveling to Peru.

My first visit La Paz in Bolivia

La Paz Bolivia urban life

I met the Bolivian side of my family for the first time in my life when I went to visit La Paz in (2011). Our encounter was very unique. My Bolivian family members and I both spoke in Spanish, but with different accents (I speak with a Dominican accent). It was very funny.

Anyways, below are some pictures from that first trip about 8-9 years ago. If you like them, write a comment below. Also, follow me on social media @cocotucafe for more pictures of my travels to Bolivia and Latin America.

While I was walking in La Paz city center, this lady and her colorful uniform grabbed my attention. She was into something.

Beers, cervezas, chelas were mainly served in the big bottles instead of the regular 8oz we are used to in other countries. Huari is my favorite.

My visit to Panama was mainly to get to know more about the coffee farms in Chiriqui. I took a break and went by public bus to take some videos of this great architecture the Panama Canal.

During my stay in the modern Panama City I was able to experience the high rise buildings all over the downtown area. I even tried the an expensive cup of Geisha coffee.

Panama Canal Small Boat Crossing

I have never experience this type of engineering design. This is the original canal, but there is a bigger one on the far back of this Panama canal videos. I saw huge cargo ships passing by. These cargo ships passing the Panama Canal were the size of a 15 floor building. It looked like a moving city.
