Second day in Lima I met way more people than the first day! Over breakfast got chattng to Josh and Jessie (real american duuudes), Cane and Caitlin (what is with american couples and similar names?!) and a really sweet british couple Dan and Becky. So all good fun :o) unfortunately i had to stay in the hostel all morning to wait for my bus ticket to arrive (i booked though the hotel and then the bus company deliver it, apparently i had to be there in person, ug) so pretty dull morning chilling out. Once it arrived around lunchtime I went for food at the same place as yesterday (it was really good!) and then wandered the streets for a bit. Saw the remains of an inca temple being dug up right in the centre of town, bizarrely enough but other than that not much going.

It was soo cold there, when i got back to the hostel i put my themals on under my clothes just to sit and read a book! Yuk!

Anywho, the other cool thing yesterday was that by bizarre coincidence and chance i met up with a guy who i was talking to on the lonely planet forum. He left a post saying he was coming to Peru and did anyone wanna meet for a drink, and it just turned out that there was an hour window between him arriving in Lima and me leaving it on the night bus, so we met up and went for hot chocolate :o) obviously i facebooked him first to make sure he wasnt totally weird :oP hes actually really sweet and was nice to chat to someone in the same boat, ie just arrived, travelling alone...

Apart from meeting alex id had quite enough of Lima, so onwards and upwards! xxx
