Someones luck is in!
Didn't do much in the morning. Just faffed about and found the local Starbucks 500 yards from the hotel, sat with a Frappucino and planned our days here!

Walked from San Isidro district where we are staying to Miraflores - the posh part of Lima with views across the sea, nice bars and restaurants and exclusive shops. Had a salad lunch in a smart outdoor shopping mall by the beach and people watched for a while as it was Sunday and there weren't many alternative venues other than museums which we werent in the mood for..... It was a really long walk there and we battled with a map with a few wrong turns along the way. Probably a good 5 miles. We had no intention of walking back. However, we just sort of started out and kept on going so all in all, walked about 10 miles plus...... Didn't have a paddle in the sea - the beach looked a little grey and unprepossessing. Neither of us fancied the powered hang glider although we are sure the views would have been spectactular!

In the evening we went for a light bite and went to bed at a reasonable

Sunday shopping
