Since the last entry, we've been pretty busy. The list includes making the house rental-ready, moving out, driving up north to see my family and return my brother's car, and having a problem tooth extracted and then dealing with the fall out of said tooth extraction with super antibiotics. Truth is that the week before going away sucked. We got to Lima absolutely shattered, and then it all changed.
Everything became easy. After a gruelling 14 hours of travel, we were picked up at the airport and taken to the wonderful Cirque Hotel in Miraflores, just around 7.30pm. Too tired to venture out to eat, the fabulous and friendly hotel manager offered us some of her own food to share. After ba very yummy meal of rice and veg, we went straight to bed.
Lima is great, amazing architecture and friendly people. Reports of it being a dangerous place to be are silly. As long as you're sensible, you should be fine. We were honestly too tired to enjoy it to the max though, but we might be back. Now though, we're in Guayaquil in Ecuador, another under rated place, as it also has it's highlights. One day is enough though' tomorrow we head to Puerto Lopez for our proper holiday on the beach. Can't wait...
