I arrived on the late flight to Lima so didn´t see much to start with, except Burger King, KFC, Pizza Hut and a massive McDonald (hideous) edging the plaza in Miraflores where I was staying but in the following morning woke up and met Jody from Canada and Marcia from Ireland.  We had a very girlie day, walking along the coast, visiting the´Park of Love', eating ice cream and shopping for an outfit for Jody´s hot date that night.  We also saw Quantum of Solace - I´m sorry it´s not as good as Casino Royale - Daniel Craig doesn't show enough of his rather sexy body, but that is just my opinion.

On the Friday I headed off to see the old town, where all the colonial buildings are.  I started on foot, but discovered Lima is a very large city and ended up with a 15 minute taxi ride to get me there.  I had a wander around and there are some lovely colonial buildings.  I then headed back, and discovered printers street, disabled equipment street, bicycle repair street, kitchen equipment street. I realised that this probably wasn´t the best area to be in so got a taxi back, so I got to see a but more of the city- Lima gets a bad press and I can see why, but I liked its craziness.

I was lucky enough to bump into Rolf, my Swiss companion in Isabela so we had a catch up, ceviche which was a lot hotter than in Ecuador and of course some beer. Just like the old days.
