People hold parties in them and sometimes entire blocks chip in to buy a pool, which can be had in local department stores for a bit over $100. (Photo by Martin Mejia/AP Photo)

Some parts of Lima have banned swimming pools on the streets, arguing that in February 2014 about 120,000 cubic meters of water was wasted in the arid city, the equivalent of 30 Olympic pools.

Local officials say the pools often block traffic and that stagnant water can become a breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes. But Callao residents love the street pools.“The houses are small, and the heat inside is intense. Rather than take a shower why not share a bath with your family out here?” said a barefoot man drinking beer who would only give his first name of Fred. (Photo by Martin Mejia/AP Photo)
