SIFF Poor Lima

By what way did I find this image?
The way began with the movie Máncora, which is in SIFF, screens on June 7th, and concerns youth, beaches, and sex. The movie begins in the city of Lima. The next step toward the image of the woman on the chairs was an interest in the city of Lima. Máncora is the source of that interest. The director, Ricardo de Montreuil, captured a melancholy that can be only be cultivated in cities that are old and crowded. I had no idea Lima was so old and so crowded. Wanting to see more of the city, I did a Google search for images. What did I find? Adriana Francesca Lima, a Brazilian supermodel. An image of the largest city in Peru only appears after the model. And the images of Adriana seem to outnumber the images of the city. This one woman is swamping a city of 8 million people.
That was my way to the legs, arms, and brown eyes of Lima.
