Travel Blogs from Lima
... we can in all of the places we go in Peru haha. So that was our whirlwind tour of Lima. The town itself was okay but we fell in love with the food. Amazing food for amazing prices. We have 1 last dinner in Lima our last night and were hoping to make it to Gaston y Astrid - rated 14th best restaurant in the world! Were in Cusco now and it is the most lovely little town Ive seen but I'll update about that later. 3 more days until our Inca Hike and 7 days until Machu Pichhu! xo ...
... the rich cultural night scene of Lima (mostly in the Barranco and Miraflores districts of the city), with live concerts and diversified musical events every night throughout my 2+ weeks spent in Lima.
On the culinary side, it only took me a few days to realize why Lima deserved its food capital reputation. Peruvian food itself is a fusion of Asian, Latin American and Indigenous cuisines. Also, their famous Inka Cola ...
... in the Netherlands! We chatted to him for a few minutes and he told us that he had been mayor of Barranco 15 years ago (true or not we aren't sure?) and not to cross a certain street as it was dangerous (we had heard Barranco was pretty safe). After chatting to him we walked along the main road and then turned down the colonial road we had seen which led down the cliff to the sea.

In the evening, we managed to scam a ton of free pisco sours (pisco with egg whites, ice..and something sour), and then played drinking games until we were almost asleep on the tables.
After a good night's sleep without our host's dogs barking and waking us up at 5am like usual, we spent the day sun bathing by the pool, which was soo nice all until now, where I have come home to see I am a giagantic lobster. Oops :)
... le. It makes for an infuriating town stroll.
Runner-up: Their incessant need to triple and quadruple starch every meal. No matter what you order, it comes with rice. And potatoes. And fries. And sometimes bread. And if you ask for no starches, just vegetables, they will look at you like you're crazy, and repeatedly ask if you're sure. This diet makes for a very stout, and presumably constipated, population.
What I will miss: Everything else ...
- Continental Breakfast
- Shuttle bus service
- Free High-Speed Internet
- Free parking
