After a 6 plus hour flight from Houston, we arrived in Lima.  What can I say, but "Interesting Place".  We took a cab from the airport through some rather downtrodden areas and dark, sinister back alleys, finally relieved to find the Sheraton.
Susan definitely likes Cisco Powers ... - I mean Pisco Sours....

The cab ride took 3 years off my life.  Although ther were 3 lanes marked on the road, the cab driver decided there were 5 lanes.  This seesm like a cross between hong kong and fiji

Off to La Paz in the morning

We had heard mixed reviews of Lima from other travellers along the way, but we had to fly there to get to the Southern Peruvian coast, so we decided to spend a couple of days checking it out. We stayed at a hostel in the trendy area of Miraflores and it was lovely! There were tonnes of nice restaurants, lots of shops and a generally clean, cosmopolitan feel. We had been told that Lima could be dirty, smoggy and dangerous, so Miraflores was definitely a pleasant surprise. We spent the first evening wandering around and had an early dinner at a Lebanese place (!) and booked seats on a double-decker bus tour for the next morning.
