On the bus to Lima I met James from England who I ended up going to the same hostel with so that we became travel buddies at least for a day or two. Lima was as grey and rainy as everyone had told me and if I had had a choice I would have gone further north straight away. Unfortunately as it was Peruvian Independence Day on the 28th every single …

I picked Miraflores to stay at the last minute. Lima is a huge city & from the guidebooks it wasn't really that clear where the best place to stay would be. I opted for the most popular place. In all honesty I'm not too sure why the tourists flock here; maybe its because it is as close to N.American that you can get down here. Its a posh suburb …

Riches and culture of Lima

... that posing in wedding outfits for photos is a big thing, maybe its part of courting, or maybe the men come with the photographer and it is just a way of getting a fine showy portrait for the woman. Lima is also a very coastal culture, we have hardly seen an indigenous person, only Spanish and mixed faces. It is a million miles from Cusco and the whole Andes highlands.

On Sunday we had arranged to join a walking tour of two ...

    My original booking was for 3 days, I ended up staying for 6! The hostel is in Miraflores in a quiet side street near Kennedy park. The hostel is clean, safe & secure. The staff here were amazing, very friendly & helpful no matter what silly questions you asked them. For a first time introduction to South America then you couldn't get better than here.

    The hostel is clean and cheerful, with a strong emphasis on 'being green'. I particularly liked the lamp shades made out of plastic bottles and the pen holder made out of an old phone book! Speaking to the owner reveals that the name Red Psycho Llama is supposed to sound like recyclable!

    The staff speak excellent English and are the sweetest girls who have no problem with you sitting down and picking their brains for tips. The 35 soles for a mixed dorm per night is, however not in line with my particular budget but does include breakfast (an egg and onion roll with unlimited tea and coffee). The neighbourhood of Mirar Flores is convenient for most things with a good transport system if you don´t mind roughing it up in the local combi´s!

    Not a bad stay but a little pricey in my opinion.
