Pedestrian shopping areas in Lima are really mysterious. In just ten blocks we saw at least 8 Pasarella stores, but none had Yaci's boots in size 39.
All were next to Top Model, a store full of accessories. It is like Starbucks… every corner is the same store. How? How does this work, a street with repeating stores?
At Passarella store #9, she got them. I ruminated over the feasibility of the same repeating stores all night long, and how people cram themselves in to shop there.
