Monet´s favourite flower...in Lima

Claude Monet loved water lilies. He had them at his garden in Giverny and depicted them in hundreds of paintings, which today hang in museums all over the world. We found some water lilies in the botanical garden of Lima´s Agricultural University in the district of La Molina, a small garden outside the usual tourist itineraries. The university also has a small shopping area before entering, besides the main entrance, where you can buy plants, fruit, vegetables, local roots and herbs like maca.
