Dave - We were picked up at 09.00 by Maira our guide and our driver in a mini bus for a 4 hour city tour. I don't particularly like cities but it was actually very interesting, I was glad someone else was driving as it was very busy and the right of way rules not that clear, I guess you gave way to stuff that was bigger than you. Where we are staying is safe enough but downtown Lima is not for tourists after dark I would say. All the banks and most of the shops have armed police or security guards outside, for the banks they only let people in small groups. Makes Toxteth look quite inviting. 

Fiona - Dave has gone photo mad, taken loads of photos of buildings, squares and men on horses, he won't remember what any of them are when we get home.

Had lunch in a street cafe, Jayne and I ordered chicken noodle soup and wondered why we were given knives and forks each; we each had quarter of a chicken in a bowl with veg broth and noodles, not quite what we were expecting but nice enough. Following Patti from Switzerland advice we walked down to the Larca Mar mall, sadly didn't find the silver shop and the alpaca shop didn't have the little jacket I liked in my size so I was unable to spend Auntie Mor's birthday money. Got chatting to an English chap about where to eat and he has booked us in to La Gloria so we'll see what that is like this evening.

And the good news in case anyone else has been worrying about it; my hot brush works yeah!
