Hotel was clean and very simple, Receptionists weren't very friendly, but not unfriendly either. When I arrivedd at 9.00p.m. there was no food served, anymore. This would have been okay, if I could have gone out and buy something. Not to go out in this neighbourhood in the night has been strongly recommended to me.
The room was clean, very small and tight, but it was just fine for one night.
Would not recommend it for longer stays.

It was late when we arrived back into Lima but we still went out as a group for our final meal with Jhonatan. It was a great night out and we'll all be sad to leave and say goodbye to Jhonatan early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow, it's onwards in our journey of South America as we venture forward two hours to a new time zone and a new country in ...
Well, we have been on many long-haul flights in the past but this one seemed to last forever. We were seated in the centre of the centre set our four seats, so it meant that Trevor and I each had someone on our other side which meant that if we needed to go to the loo or wanted to get up to stretch our legs or retrieve something from our bags, we would have to disturb the person in the aisle seat.
Time passed in its inexorable and inevitable way, ...
... into central Lima, which initially seemed very loud and gritty. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we came across the Plaza de Armas and San Martin, which had some nice colonial buildings and pretty flowers.
The highlight of Lima was definitely the fountain park, best seen at night and very popular. Consisted of about 16 differently styled fountains and included an impressive laser fountain show.
