... the whole of Lima on a Sunday afternoon, despite the gloom. There is a lighthouse and Parque del Amor with Gaudiesque seating and a romantic sculpture.

We arrived in Lima very late on due to the hectic Saturday night traffic. Just time to grab a McDonalds and a beer and then off to bed.

We then headed out to ...

... Tintoreras, Puerto Villamil, Weather: 22c-25c, cloudy, sunny 5:30 wake-up 6:00 breakfast 6:45 zodiac to Las Tintoreras, lots of marine iguanas but no white-tip reef sharks resting. Then we take the zodiac to the port and a truck-bus to the volcano. We walk up the trail for 45 minutes and reach the crater. Unfortunately it's very cloudy and cannot see the 10km wide crater filled with lava. 12:00 lunch, quiet time. Anna is very ill, high fever, painful headache, stomach cramps. ...
