Lima, Peru

It's possible that "MC" is the name of some club in the building, either one of the businessmen's clubs, or a nightclub. If the latter, it's probably gone. The basements of the buildings behind this arcade and elsewhere around the square used to be filled with fashionable nightclubs. Carlos told us his parents went on their first date to one of them, and Mario Vargas Llosa apparently describes what they were like in one of his novels set in the 50s. But they're all gone now.
