Lima, Peru

... Lima. We had been told by a lot of people we'd met that Lima wasn't that great which is why we had stayed in Paracas so long. Unfortunately they were right. There isn't a huge amount to do in Lima and it is very, very expensive. Even sending a parcel cost us more than it had in Cusco, which didn't seem right as we used the same company.

However, we did find Kennedy Park which was ...

It was so fresh and flavourful and the portion was enormous so was thankful that I shared it with Debbie. For a main I tried the Tacu Tacu (rice and beans with a cream sauce) with scallops complete with attached roe, which again was also enormous and flavourful. It was another ...
