Barranco & Miraflores districts of Lima
Sat 26 May 2007 - Sat 26 May 2007 25 °C
In the morning we flew from Cuzco to Lima. It was actually funny, as we kept on meeting random people form our previous trips - the Americans (Marie & Matt) - from the Canyon & Titicaca trips & the 2 Belgian boys (Steven & Tom) Canyon trip). Also, the night before, in Cuzco, we ran into the same Americans + the 2 Icelanders. We happened to have chosen the same restaurant for dinner (from our Lonely Planets, how else ).
It's almost the end of our trip . tomorrow night flying back home
We first went to our hotel - El Patio. he patio was nice indeed - with lots of flowers and little birds in cages. But the room was really small, and the bed even smaller. It was supposed to be a double room, but it looked more like a single :-S
here's some pickies of the hotel:
After checking in we took a cab to the Barranco district of Lima - which was supposed to be relatively safe (unlike other parts of the city - especially after dark!). We first went for lunch to La Rustica - restaurant recommended by a friend (thanks Simon!).
It was buffet with dishes from all over Peru, all you can eat. Needless to say, we got stuffed like turkeys (what else is new!).
Later on we walked around Barranco
Later on we went to another district - Miraflores - where our hotel was located, It was so pretty - by the ocean.
later on, at sunset, some paragliders started flying by:
we had some drinks at the modern shopping mall by the ocean:
after that we went to one of the best restaurants in Lima - one built on it's own pier by the ocean - where we overdosed on seafood - it was delicious:
