LIMA, Peru — Lima can be a grim city. But one thing the Peruvian capital has going for it is its world-class surfing breaks.

He has been busy dumping boulders onto one of Lima’s best loved surf spots, la Pampilla. Then somebody painted the rocks bright yellow, which happens to be the color of Castañeda’s National Solidarity party.
