Limassa Humalaa moikkaamassa

A travel blog entry by matkaajamaks

Syy bussin seisomiseen oli maanvyöry, joka oli katkaissut …

Onward to Peru!!!

... we wanted to see the Mate, Mario Testino's gallery in Barranco. There were works of friends of Testino’s on display that were fabulous as well as some of his own. We loved it all, the house, the colors of the walls and the art!

... same counter as us - everyone else from our plane who had also missed connections were waiting patiently in the same line we were in - and DEMANDED (in his American accent) that someone get him a manager, because he and his girlfriend HAD to get to Quito. No, he wasn't angry at the lady at the counter (he shouted to her) he was ANGRY at her STUPID AIRLINE. He was sent to the supervisor's desk further down the line and while the nice but overworked staff at our ...

Days 32-39: Paracas to Lima (The Capital City!)

A travel blog entry by rjcannin


... Rachael is already researching what kind of high end coffee machine we're going to need once we get home. It wasn't all coffee in Barranco though, we also went out for a couple pitchers of sangria at a bar and saw some great live music. Every 20 or 30 minutes a new musician would come in with a guitar on his back and change out with the last guy to play a short acoustic set. It was a little hole in the wall bar and was packed full. We tried to go out to a place we heard had great ...

Peru Part 1

... their wine and pisco (another alcoholic drink). Following the tour, everyone had a shot of each different drink which warmed our bellies.

The next morning the tour had arranged a visit to the Chauchilla Cemetery where there was an array of mummies that were preserved in the desert. I forfeited this trip to go and lodge a police report about the phone while Rach joined the group to the cemetery.

    Marco was quite simply the best host I had during my time in Peru - Very helpful with everything, sharing his knowledge of the city, loaning bus cards, mixing drinks and making his guests feel so comfortable. The apartment has been renovated to hotel standard, but still feels like home. Only minor gripe is the location, which is not central (about 6 blocks to nearest metrobus station, bit less to local busses), but this can also be a good thing for your sleep: the area is pretty quiet.
