Maybe this is what I should do, just start taking pictures of random street corners of Lima and then post an image from them on this page. It is "Streets of Lima" after all. I actually lived in that orange building in the back there for a little while. After 8 years of living in Lima, I determined that the area in between the streets Arequipa, Jose Pardo, Commandante Espinar, and Angamos was the best place to live.
Because that area is right where all the action is, plus it's within walking distance of all the best restaurants as well as the sea. Here's a map (South American Explorers agrees with me because they're just shy of the corner of Piura and Arequipa):

Anyway, the above image kind of looks like a typical day. A bit overcast, a bit mellow, with cars flying by like bullets and solitary crazy folks prowling the streets. I love it and miss it!
