Day 12 & 13 - Lima Peru

A few days in the city

sunny 77 °F

Stories and Experience:
We booked a guesthouse and gallery that was recommended to us by a couple that we meet named secondhomeperu. It’s well worth the price and it is a unique Bohemian Peruvian place. The home use too was the studio for Victor Delfin. The room and view are relaxing. Something we both needed. After a quick trip from the store to get some wine, cheese, salami, olives, French bread and some brownies. We went back to the hotel and had a wonderful dinner.

The 13th we did our daily walking along the beach walkway to the Miraflores shopping center. I guess we just didn’t get enough over the last few days. At the center it was like any other outdoor mall. The prices were common US prices that I have seen. So, there is no great special here, but if you forget something or wanted to get that last Alpaca item, here the place get it.

After a walk we just soaked up the sun for a bit more. Knowing that in a few days we will be back in Seattle lovely 48-degree rainy weather. Yes, get the sun now, because we might not see it for another 4 more months.

What To Do:
There appeared to be a lot going on at the beach. We didn’t get a chance to make it down there. I think is we had another day we would have put our toes in the sand for a bit.
City tours. Again we were toured out by this time and didn’t take these

Recommendation:
Make sure you know or ask about the neighborhood. The beach for example, this was one of the places that the local said to avoid after dark. I guess there are a number of robberies after dark

Gear and Advise:
Good shoes and sunscreen

Ending notes:
For us this was the wind-down to our vacation. All we were in the mood for is to eat, sleep and relax. The www.secondhomeperu.com gave us that place. It was not the misrepresented place in Chile "Posada BellaMare Lodging". It was a great finish to a very exciting and adventures vacation. Looking back, it was like a mini amazing race.
