Flag of Peru  , Lima,
Tuesday, March 8, 2011

We ended up staying in Lima for a couple of days, taking in some fresh Ceviche (raw fish, itīs a taste sensation!) at a fishermans wharf in Chorrillos, a suburb of Lima.  Since then we have been toying with the idea of making some ourselves but fear the consequences!  We also went to a pretty good museum (mum, the pottery shots are for you!) and took in a 16 hour nights sleep, we blame the jet lag!

From Lima (and well rested) we headed to Punta Hermosa a beachside resort about 30 - 40 kms south.  Itīs best decribed as part building site/part luxury resort.  I (Luke) managed to get my first surf in and itīs fair to say I got a bit of a pasting :-)  The weather was really hot, even Nat had to get under an umbrella for some of the time!  The owner of the hostal we stayed at was a top lad but a whole īnother story!! 

Weīve been in Lunahuana for the last couple of days, 200 Kms South of Lima, itīs a pretty, small town in a river valley surrounded by mountains.  Itīs really good for adventure sports and weīve taken in some mountain biking and white water rafting.  The rafting was outstanding!! 

And as for the weather...still mucho calor!!...Think this may change when we get up to Cuzco in a few days where we have been reliably informed it is hosing it down :-) ... next stop Nazca

Muchos besos Luke and Nat x
