I arrived on the late flight to Lima so didnīt see much to start with, except Burger King, KFC, Pizza Hut and a massive McDonald (hideous) edging the plaza in Miraflores where I was staying but in the following morning woke up and met Jody from Canada and Marcia from Ireland.  We had a very girlie day, walking along the coast, visiting theīPark of Love', eating ice cream and shopping for an outfit for Jodyīs hot date that night.  We also saw Quantum of Solace - Iīm sorry itīs not as good as Casino Royale - Daniel Craig doesn't show enough of his rather sexy body, but that is just my opinion.

On the Friday I headed off to see the old town, where all the colonial buildings are.  I started on foot, but discovered Lima is a very large city and ended up with a 15 minute taxi ride to get me there.  I had a wander around and there are some lovely colonial buildings.  I then headed back, and discovered printers street, disabled equipment street, bicycle repair street, kitchen equipment street. I realised that this probably wasnīt the best area to be in so got a taxi back, so I got to see a but more of the city- Lima gets a bad press and I can see why, but I liked its craziness.

I was lucky enough to bump into Rolf, my Swiss companion in Isabela so we had a catch up, ceviche which was a lot hotter than in Ecuador and of course some beer. Just like the old days.
