... plus more catacombs and we saw and spoke briefly to a guy who'd been on the tour in Huaca Pucllana the previous day. We finally found some expensive coffee, probably because it was the only coffee shop in Lima, and went on advice to climb the tower of the Santo Domingo Church and Convent. The tower was shut.
