Lima is a very noisy place! Everyone beeps each other for no reason, you are walking down the street and people beep at you! I have yet to see a car that isn´t completely battered! Im guessing that MOTs and car insurance are not a big priority here We are staying near the Larcomar Mall which sits on the cliffs of Miraflores. Took the Lima City bus tour, saw the Catacombs, San Martin Square, Mayor Square and the Convent of San Francisco.
We met up with Jessica, Victoria, Julissa and Heidi at the Aguas Magicas (Magic Waters), a park with lots of fountains that have light displays and music. Was a funny night, Teddy and Victoria decided to push each other into one of the fountains and got absolutely soaked. Got some food afterwards in Kennedy Square, there was a small market in the middle with lots of wild cats walking about!
Changed hotels to Hotel Britania to meet our group which we will stay with for the next 21 days. Still in Miraflores and a really nice hotel. Found a laundrette to get our first load of washing done. At 7pm we met up with our tour guide Lila, a married couple Pete and Cath from Cheshire, a lady from Belfast called Doreen who is a yoga teacher, and a girl from Germany called Sabine. Went and had our first dinner together, everyone is really friendly and think we will have a great time over the next 3 weeks!
