Linda’s Travel Diary

Location: Lima, Peru

MapWe ve been having a fantastic time in Lima, possibly the best city we ve visited so far. We ve been staying in an area called Miraflores which is right near the beach. Everything we want is in walking distance, or a quick, cheap ride in a taxi. Unfortunately the food continues to be unbelievably good and we are both getting chubbier by the day.

We took a couple of days to go to Nasca to see the Nasca Lines. For those not familiar with what these are, I m including a link to a website. The only way to see them is from the air and the little town of Nasca does a thriving business flying tourists around in Cessnas to see them. It s one of the best things we have done, truly amazing.

Tomorrow we are leaving Lima behind and are catching a 7am train to Huancayo. It s a scenic train trip that takes all day, winding up into the mountains. Apparently it is very beautiful so we hope it lives up to what we ve heard about it, I m sure it will.

Time to head off to bed, the wake-up call is at 5.30am!!!!!!
