Not a bad movie, few laughs but do love The Rock. We pull into another random Cruz del Sur office in the stinkiest, fish smelling town we've been to.

... to do something "normal" for a change. You have probably realised that we are so over museums now!
We still wanted to try a good restaurant that Lima was so famous for. We managed to get a reservation at Maido, a Japanese restaurant with Peruvian elements, voted 11 out of the top 50 restaurants in Latin America in 2014. Once we got there, we realised that there was nothing vegetarian on the menu! The attentive waiter ordered us some ...
