The hotel in Lima is very comfortable and I slept well, waking before 6:00.

We were not due to be collected to go to the airport until 16:00 to catch our flight home at 20:00 so we spent the morning working in our room - I wrote more of this blog and uploaded photos - and then we went out.

We walked down to the sea-front first of all to investigate an underground shopping mall and sea the Pacific Ocean. On the way I took a photo of one of the private gardens and street sellers of fruit to illustrate the character of Miraflores which is definitely a rather upmarket part of Lima. We had lunch in an upmarket Japanese restaurant.

The flight home via Schipol was fine - though arriving back in Norwich to 12 degrees C was a bit of a shock.

It had been a wonderful adventure.

Turning in the opposite direction to the shopping mall this was the view, with the crashing of the Pacific breakers on the stony beach

For lunch we went into a Japanese style restaurant on the ground floor of a posh looking office block housing finance and media companies.
