... messages from our briefing was around altitude sickness, and I am glad we were pre-warned. Some of us went out to find altitude pills and grab dins in the local square before zzzz. I didn't sleep at all on the plane, so by the time bed time came around, I literally passed out cold. Lima is far bigger than I thought it would be.

We were back at the hostel after only being out for a couple of hours to pack and get our bus to Lima... which was to take ...
... to piece together that just down the adjacent side street was one of the restaurants that Nevers had recommended. We went in and picked something off the Spanish menu that we were only half sure what it was going to be. There was also our first Peruvian beer. The food that did arrive was fantastic and we both hope it sets the standard for the remainder of the trip. The only downside was our lack of Spanish. We felt very ignorant trying to ...
