I woke up at 9... Not too jet lagged (well, I don't think so anyway, but I'll find out tonight). I had breakfast at the hostel and then walked to Larco Mar - beach area. I then walked back to the hostel as I realised I had no idea where to go. A guy at the hostel showed me directions to Parque Kennedy and Huaca Pucllana (a ruin site in Lima) so I walked there and did a tour. I then walked to La Casa del Ceviche and ordered lunch- the ceviche was raw fish, which was tasty, but it's raw fish! I have exhausted ALL of my Spanish - but I'm pretty sure I didn't ask for raw fish. I also had arroz y mariscos (essentially paella). Just as I was starting to feel safe, an American lady stopped me on my walk and said 'I would take that tag off your bag, you look like a major tourist. Also, that lock isn't going to stop anyone, they will just cut through the bag'. Thanks lady. . There is far less English spoken than I thought... and people aren't as friendly as I thought they would be. The only ones that talk to me are very dodgy. The people at the hostel have no drama in taking cabs off the street, but I'm a bit more skeptical and have yet to take a cab. I am going to walk down to the beach again now to check out some other parks that were recommended to me. Adios
