A Neighbourhood Pool Parties In Peru

A group of women dance in a pool in Callao, Peru, Sunday, February 22, 2015. One of centers for the front-doorstep, pool-party phenomenon is Lima’s port city of Callao. 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)

The heat in and around Peru’s sprawling capital can be intense in February, the heart of the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, and residents of its poor neighborhoods are cooling themselves by setting up plastic pools on the street in front of their homes.

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.

A group of friends take a break from swimming, backdropped by a mural featuring Salsa singer Hector Lavoe, in Callao, Peru, Sunday, February 22, 2015. 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)
