We made a point to dip our feet in the ocean, cause who knows when we will be in South America again?! At 4 pm, our Peruvian food tour picked us up.

What a tongue twister, I got myself in a right cufuffle, before finally arriving at our hotel by the sea. Ahhh sea level, what a treat and a great view from our bedroom too.
