Where I stayed
Hotel Libertador Lima
Read my review - 1/5 stars

Flag of Peru  , Lima Province,
Tuesday, September 25, 2012

That means I left Cusco on an airplane at the serious crack of dawn this morning. I had to be in the lobby of the hotel at 5:30, which meant being up and out of the room so early, and I didn't sleep one little bit. Nada, nunca, nadie. Zip!

And it is so much fun to travel and carry your own stuff when you have one good arm, no good legs, and you limp like a 90 year old. Right foot because of toe, left leg because of hip. I feel like an idiot because people can't see that there are things wrong. I just look like a complete old gimp! And trying to carry my stuff, go through security...love it. But good thing is, if you want to do anything bad, just go through Peru. They really don't care much.

At the airport, I was boarded by 6:30 and here in the lobby on The Libertador Hotel in Lima, Peru by 9:00. Wow! Had to rent a room for the day. No more sightseeing. Done! Seen this city already. It's a good thing I'm staying here for a day, or I would be gone. This place was supposed to be rated a 4 or 5 star. NOT. But I'm not going to complain since I'm here for 12 hours.

I'll be on an AMERICAN plane tonight. Leaves at 12:40 a.m. (Wednesday morning actually). Goes to Atlanta first, then a 4 hour layover (yeah), and then home to Seattle by 12:30 Wednesday.

Then you shouldn't get anymore of these updates. I'll be back home.

This has been an interesting way to communicate, I'll admit. I wish I had been a better traveler. Sorry for the ridiculous antics. My first time out alone. Learned some serious lessons. Like,
"don't travel alone". I guess that I've become used to old habits, and they are hard to break.

In less than 12 hours, I can "think and speak" in English. Even my dreams are in Spanish. Enough already. TV, every person I see. And, I have had to learn a whole new kind of Spanish. Actually, almost 2 kinds. Some of the children at the orphanage speak Qetchua.

There are so many different dialects here. Inca dialects, but overall, it is Castillian, which is a pure Spanish that the Spaniards brought over when the stole everything valuable from this country. They took all of the gold, precious valuables, and used the people as slaves. Then they made them learn their language. Sounds kind of like the English and our Native Americans.

OK--signing off from Peru. It was an Escape. And an Adventure. Just not what I had hoped for. Maybe next time.
