... exploring around the neighborhood, shopping at a local "whole foods" type of supermarket.
Yesterday went downtown to the historic area of Lima. We walked quite a ways from the bus station (it resembles the set-up of Bogota with its dedicated lanes and limited stops around town) to get to the historic district. It is very different from the colonial streets of Bogota. One of the features is the covered balconies on the old houses. These hail from the ...
... my dream. (http://www.tucantravel.com/tour/overvi ew/nazca-lines-huacachina-and-the-balle stas-islands/rpdp). I am not going to beat about the bush here but I am not a big fan of Lima. It's a huge city with a sprawling population of over 10 million people and in comparison to Cusco, it's a shock to the system! That's not to say I didn't have a good time in Lima, I just personally would not recommend spending a lot of time in the city, perhaps 2-3 days maximum. The traffic ...

The bartender then schooled us on how to make the perfect Pisco Sour: 3 jiggers of Pisco, 1 jigger of fresh lime juice, 1 jigger ...
This morning after breakfast was the parting, as most of the group boarded the bus for their long ride to Lake Titicaca with Walter, and we, Dan and Maria headed to the airport for our flight back to Lima and eventually home. We would have really liked to see those floating islands, but considering that I would not feel well for another week, and the lake was at an even higher altitude, it's lucky that we were not booked for that trip. Upon arrival in Lima, we were taken ...
