So Lima has been delicious so far. The flavors in the ceviche are very special, it must be the peppers. The small ceviche restaurants always think I will start with ceviche and then have “segundo”. I have to make sure I say Solo or I get a huge plate of rice and meat. I learned this the hard way. A few older ladies didn't believe this was all I wanted, their faces reflected mild sympathy for my obvious mental disorder. Also, I am now in love with Lomo Saltado, beef and peppers in a succulent brown sauce served with rice and french fries, I know. Oh and the sandutches, pretty crazy sandwiches that always seem to include avocado.
I went to the art museum here (MALI) and fell in love with a couple of the modern pieces. They had a Szyszlo and my new favorite Macedonio De La Torre. They had some pretty epic ancient artifacts like tupos. I had no idea what a tupo was till now. I thought they went in your hair.(they are for holding a shawl closed F.Y.I.) Also a masterpiece called The Funeral of Atahualpa by Luis Montero, which is about
the size of my entire apartments floor plan. I would go back in a heart beat if I had time.
I walked all the way back to the hostel from the Museum. It took a good 4 hours. I stopped for coffee and beer at various places along the way. It was freaking hot. 80F and sunny, I also stopped to apply lots of sunscreen.
I have a ticket to Ica,Peru. Where i will slide down some dunes perhaps. I leave at noon tomorrow and then on to Arequipa, Peru,where I will spend more time so I can get used to the altitude before my cross into Bolivia.
