Where I stayed
Las Americas Hotel
Then we're off to the airport- an opportunity for more shopping for some. I don't see anything of interest & figure I'll wait til Sunday. I'll have nearly a full day in Lima before my plane leaves.
We finally arrive at the hotel- nearly 1:30. Dan & Kirsten have arranged an extra tour of the Museo Nacion that we skipped on our first visit since it's undergoing some construction
Back at the hotel room I have nearly 2 hours before dinner. I try out the new alpaca sweater (itchy but looks good)- & iron a pair of pants- this is my so-called dressy outfit for the farewell dinner.
I have to begin taking inventory of all the gifts- figuring out value for customs as well as who gets what. I guess I could use about 6 more to cover everyone on the list. Then we're off to dinner- a very nice restaurant that's actually built next to an archaeological. site- cool way to end the trip. There's lots of photo taking of ourselves this time. Then many hugs at the hotel since folks will be leaving at many different times between tonight and tomorrow night.
Then up to bed, where I find Al Bear tucked in by the maid! I don't have to set the alarm for once. No need to get up early except for breakfast. I read for a couple hours before turning in.
