Left the park, going to the restaurant Rosa Nautica at dusk.

The restaurant Rosa Nautica is on a pier that protrudes offshore.

Let’s enter that restaurant.

Opened in 1983, the restaurant’s dishes are mainly seafood. In the romantic restaurant on the pier protruding in the sea, Guests can enjoy the best cuisine while watching the splendid night view.

We had dinner in the restaurant Rosa Nautica.

The night views around the restaurant, the scenery was very beautiful.

After dinner, we moved to the International Airport of Lima and we left for home in Tokyo via Los Angeles. It was a very long flight and I got tired.

My travel in Peru and Bolivia is over. I will never visit the lands again because I am so old. However, in the unknown places, locals were very kind to me. I was very happy to see interesting different culture. I greatly appreciate Peruvians and Bolivians, and hope their happiness forever.
