Lima is more than about beans

Miguel a Peruvian we met on our bus tour of Lima: The blokes are very style conscious here.
Miguel is a someone met while on the bus tour… the blokes are really stylish here in Lima as you can see!

Met some of the Peru´s challenge team and sounds like we escaped some terrible plane stories… 10 hour delays etc etc…

but Gord had to sit next to a woman clutching a Maccá´s takeaway… you can imagine Gord´s response! He spoke to her constantly about how she was going to dispòse of the wrappers (even though she didn´t speak English and he really isn´t that fluent in Spanish…I think you get the picture!)

We also did a 3 hour city tour (part of the PC deal) and spent 3.5 hours discussing why we DON´T do tours of more than three people: Gordon, Sonia and the driver.

Off to have dinner at Rosa Nautica… the best restaurant in Lima… out on an historic pier. The ocean is an 80 metre drop from our small hostel… we won´t be abseiling I can assure you to dinner… we aren´t that keen on eating cerviche (lime marinated seafood).

Til next time

    Love the bean concept and pics of the dogs. If this was a pic of the restauraunt that you went to,,,, Wow. All looks very swish. Glad there is no abseiling involved.
    We have had a nice start to Saturday with a breaky @ Tricycle. Loved it. Went to a fab tour of Henry Jones Art Hotel last night. Totally Fab.. wish I had taken you girls when you were here. I will keep my fingers crossed for next trip eh!
    Speaking of Art house, we have decide to really ham up the fireman’s loft concept. I have about 20 ideas for paintings and associated mixed media art works. Hope I Can fit some creative time in to the next few weeks.
    Heard from Sally D last evening. Her Mum is in Hospital, no diagnosis as yet.
    But news doesn’t bode well. Everyone is hoping that a simple diagnosis will reveal a solution Sally is being stoic and as lovely as ever.
    Will keep you posted in case she doesn’t get the chance to.
    Hoping your next few days have continued well.
    Loving to hear your stories.
    Will keep you posted
    Lots of love T
