Goodbye South America!!
Yes we are at the last part of our trip in Lima, Peru....well we are actually staying in Minaflores, which is just south of the city, as Lima is a little dodgy!!
We are flying out tonight to Los Angeles for a couple of days before returning to sunny Australia.
Lima is a little odd city as it is not a safe place to venture out but where we are is a very nice part of town, for here, & a little safer.
I have read lots of things about Lima so we are not going to try our luck!!
Otherwise all is well, even if I have a little head cold & Sharon will be glad to get a good cup of tea again, as the past 6 weeks in South America have flow by.
Lots of memories & great places.
The whole city here is surrounded by slums as this is where half of the countrys population lives & they are below the poverty line.
All you can see when you fly in is buildings & no trees, even the waterfront (?) is a tip that they are using to reclaim the sea, very dirty.
A wierd fog rolls over the city too from the sea which can be quite thick.
Not much else to report from Lima & we are just about South Americad out now!!
Hope all are well & roll on an English speaking country.....but not the US!!
Adios amigos from Peru!!
Keith & Sharon
