Torin and I arrived around midnight last night and were tucked in to our oh so funky yet perfect hotel. Lima at night is deserted, shabby and a little creepy. Today however the streets are bustling with cars whizing by and constantly honking.
We ate lunch at a corner restaurant where we discovered that the guidebooks aren´t lying when they say they love their sweets here. On every corner there is a cart or small tienda to buy candy or pastries. Our meal came with jello that was 90% sugar. Other than that however it was yummy. I have already suffered the consequences of their love of cilantro however. This may be a long three months 😊
Tomorrow we are hopping on a bus and heading to Pisco, a small fishing and market town right on the coast. We´re hoping to do a boat tour from there of the Islas Ballestas, aka ¨the poor mans gallapagos.¨ From there we´re thinking maybe Nazca, or possibly just getting down to Arequipa.
More to come soon, though photos likely won´t be feasible until I´m settled in in Viña.
Love from Peru
