We arrived safely in Lima, Peru yesterday and spent the day there because we had to wait till evening.  Our bus came to pick us up at 10pm.  Monique and I sat in the front on the second floor.  The roads are so narrow and there was a cliff on one side.  It was pretty scary.  Fortunately we all fell asleep.  We were all terrified once we woke up again.  We were on that bus for 11 or 12 hours which felt like a long time.  Looking out the window we passed tiny villages and huts.  What we saw was like a huge desert on one side of the road and the other side was a cliff that went straight down where the South Pacific Ocean.  It looked really nice but not a beach you would want to swim at.  About 2 hours before we arrived the air-conditioning broke and we all started sweating.  It was thirty-five degrees on the bus.  Before that we were freezing.  Once we got of the bus again there was two women holding up a sign saying "Raymond Maaske".  These two ladies' went and showed us around and brought us to the apartment we are renting.    They are very nice ladies.
