Well, we Landed in Lima last night around 6:30pm. An easy cab ride from the airport (unlike the Banckok Debacle). There is a lot of Poverty here , a lot.... yet surrounding it is a Contemporary City. wwe were a little surprised by all the new contemporary architecture in Lima.  Design must be a big priority here - Who knew? We don't plan on stickiung around Lima more than just this fist day. The goal is usually to get out of the cities soon and see the countryside. You see more thar way, experience more..its feels....real. Ended up at the craziest Hostel ever, Mirafloures House.  "Francois", the owner, hugged and kissed us and helped us RE-PLAN our trip.  We had a general itinerary, and it went out the window for the most part because of his advice. Lets hope it pays off.  The guy treated us better than some people get treated by their own family. 1 hour before we had to leave and get a plane to Cusco (4am) Francois got up and had egg and ham breakfast samis all hot and ready for us, along with fresh squeezed papaya juice - yummers. 
    Last night, tho, On Francois' advice, we went to a restaurant close by and ordered off a menu we couldn't even read. Maybe we shoiuld invest in Spanish lessons.  I guess just point and cross your fingers.  Good none-the-less. We Tried a Peruvian drink called (Chicha Mirada) made from corn, spiced apple and nutmeg...still aren't sure if it had liquor in it or not. Thick as all hell - but good. Still have purple teeth. There is a purple version and a white version.
