Article Photos: AP PHOTOS: Working-class beach for Peru's capital 7/20

In this Jan. 22, 2013 photo, a woman covers herself with a towel on Agua Dulce beach in Lima, Peru. While Lima's elite spends its summer weekends in gate beach enclaves south of the Peruvian capital, the working class jams by the thousands on a single municipal beach of grayish-brown sands and gentle waves. Until the mid-20th century, Lima's lower classes couldn't afford beach-going, said Juan Pacheco, a historian of the city. Road-building to the coast solved that, and the rich began to largely abandon Lima's beaches to the poorer set. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
