Flag of Peru  ,
Tuesday, November 1, 2005

I ended up staying in Lima for nine days as I had gotten to the point where I was a little tired of travelling so much and needed to chill out for a while. I stayed at the Flying Dog Backpackers in Myraflores which was pretty chilled out and run by some young peruvians. Myraflores is the nicer posher area of Lima.
I generally just spent a lot of time in the hostel, which had a very chilled atmosphere. On one particular day I ended up watching four DVDs. I also went out to quite a few clubs. Myself and another English guy met a couple of local girls who took us to a club on one of the nights notreally noticing anything out of the ordinary except when the ´Spice Boys´popped out for a show on stage. "Spice up your Life"- No Thanks.
I took a taxi into central Lima and was actually quite surprised at how nice the central Plaza was. From there, there was a main bustling shopping street and loads of old churches scattered about. I also took a walk to the see the massive cliffs that are a Paragliders dream, for a view over the rocky beach below and the Pacific Ocean. I also decided to get another tattoo and so after drawing up a design and searching out a couple of parlours found a young guy who was a pretty good artist. It was pretty cool hanging out in the studio chatting with piegon english with the artist and the people getting inked, I think they found it pretty strange a gringo had walked into his shop and his lack of english and my lack of spanish made it a pretty funny experience. I got a row of stars on my underside of my wrist. The next girl after me was also getting some stars done on her neck. The Studio's name is Artesagrado. (
After nine days of chilling with some great people in the hostel I decided to pick up the pace and Tommorrow head down south to a town called Pisco.
