Where I stayed

Flag of Peru  , Lima Region,
Sunday, August 18, 2013

Spent the day in Lima. The impression of the city from the airport trip is not good but today we found the nice parts and it is a very beautiful place. Last night we visited the fountains in the park which are illuminated fountains in time to music. This morning we walked down to Miraflores which is on the coast. This area was very spectacular and hundreds of people were out running and riding bikes along the tracks on the cliff walk. We had the best cappuccino ever on our walk back. We also visited the Park of Looove.
We then joined the tour and had a spectacular lunch at the private home of one of the cities prominant families. Two pisco sours and Peruvian wine made the lunch very enjoyable. The house and paintings as well as the family history increased the enjoyment.
We then visited the Franciscan monastery with the catacombs underneath full of skulls and bones. Finished the tour with a walk to the Plaza de Armes
The weather here is unreal. 10mm of rain in a year and mist for nine months of the year.
Tomorrow is a five o'clock start when we fly back to Cusco and visit the Sacred Valley.
