    Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

    Do Not stay in this hotel if you want to sleep!

    We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

    ... they were innocuous and not sacrificial! It was fascinating to view something this old (built between the years of 200 and 700 AD) within such an urban environment.

    After a short drive, we arrived at the Plaza de Armas, which is the birthplace of the city of Lima. The entire large square is encircled by various palaces as well as the Cathedral of Lima, built in 1622 but later rebuilt (after an earthquake?) as well as added onto over the years. It has a ...

    This is the day we have been waiting for. Happy, excited and scared at the same time! The whole Hinojosa's clan is going to be waiting to welcome us back after 23 years. Our last visit was also celebrated at the same place, at our auntie Julia's place. Ruthie picked us up at 12pm with Elly (who is still a nutter). the trip to Auntie Julia's took about 90 minutes. Ruthie purposely took the "scenic" route for us to see more of ...

    ... when it was done we added the goat to the pot and waited for the stew to cook. After hours of waiting our stew was ready. We set the table and us and the family all sat down to enjoy our meal. The stew was nothing we have every tasted before, the meat fell apart in your mouth and the flavors were so unique it was to die for. After we ate many helpings of the stew, we helped the family cleanup, and collected our things and set back on our journey to the hotel. ...

    ... was (Dallas). It would just need to catch up with me. In fact, they would deliver it to my hotel in Cusco for me. That's kind of neat - I figured I would be going back to the airport to check for it myself.

    On the plus side, I have my wallet, passport, toiletries, and camera, so I'm still pretty much set for adventure.

    Because of the long delay filling out the paperwork, I had to run ...

    Day of Relaxation

    ... and then I just hung around the room with my two roommates. Midday I did venture out to the grocery store that was a few doors down to grab some food for lunch and dinner but that is truly the extent of excitement for the day. I think when you are travelling for long periods of time and it is intensive travel like we've been doing on the truck, you need a day every once in a while to relax and do nothing. Tomorrow I'll make more of an attempt to see the ...
