Day 60 – Huaraz to Lima

Wow – I can’t believe it’s day 60!
Wierd day today. Was still not 100% this morning. The altitude, cold, fog, and potholes on the road did not help. Down from the mountains we got more desert until Lima… Got pulled over by some cops who caught us speeding 🙁
Lima is not pretty – well at least from the little I’ve seen – not realy fair but so far Peru is my lest favorite country so far. So barren. Very poor. Not too pretty.
Hoping Nazca and Machu Pichu will be worth it and change my opinion of the country.

Ok – ok – not a fair review of Lima – what we saw were the outskirts of town. After settling down at the hotel Libertador we went to have dinner at Antica Pizzaria – a very nice Italian place where you choose the pasta and then a sauce out of several choices. The neighborhood was quite nice as well. 
In any case – tomorrow we should drive through the historic center of town to get a better glimpse of the nicer parts of Lima. 

And today’s video is almost not worth posting… the battery was low and I didn’t notice it throughout the day so I only got the first few seconds of each comment I’ve made… I decided to post just to get some of the scenery:

  1. Lima é feia mesmo, muita pobreza … mas Cuzco (em especial) and Macchu Picchu devem mudar sua opinião sobre o Peru !!! Um bjo e boa semana Dre 🙂

    and franco started crawling this week, and has two bottom teeth, cute as can be!! um moleque pilantra, já! gosta de uma farrinha, daí fica bem sério, observando tudo.

    eva continues a princess – each day the princess fever gets worse. she says she’s ‘princesa azul’ (cinderella), loves high heels (NO, she doesn’t have one and is terminantemente proibida de usar, ter ou de ganhar um!!!) but she looks at every woman’s shoes and points out the heels she sees… oh my. we’re in trouble!

  6. Apparently Lima is a fantastic place to eat.
    Lots of excelent restos to go.
    And, as you know, it doesnt rain in Lima so lots of open places (the bath in a friend’s of mine home had no roof…).
    The corn is excellent…. there is a tiny pig (poor animal ) that they cook in a special way and of coarse fish ..and ceviche, tipical from there.
    The Museum (forgot the name) is beautiful….
    Lovely homes….beautiful clubs, etc, etc.
    Hope you discover some of the of beauty of the city
    and feel better.
    Love you, Suzana
