Welcome to Lima! After a crazy week in the jungle, where we celebrated Josh’s birthday, festivities continued with a well deserved scrub up, yum meals and comfy bed back in civilization 🙂
Our first night kicked off catching up with Diana and Sylvia from Lima who I stayed with when I was visiting a few years ago. It was so lovely to see them both and catch up on time gone by.
After drinks we had a very special dinner as a birthday gift from Josh’s parents. We had a great meal and savoured every last bite.
The highlight was for sure the ceviche which is a Peruvian speciality – fresh white fish marinated in citrus fruit and chilli. It was delicious!
The rest of our stay in Lima involved walking the streets as we do; visiting the city centre which was buzzing with parades and festivities
And then we headed to Lacomar, a cool open air shopping mall with restaurants and a great waterside view.
Night time came around too quickly again, and we enjoyed a pisco sour at the hotel bar. Another Peruvian speciality consisting of pisco, lemon, sugar and egg white. Don’t judge till you try!
Our night ended at a games room. Need we say more? We spent a lot of money getting these tickets… Which got us 2 packs of chewing gum, hello kitty hair clips and a small ball 🙂
A fun few days in Lima, but time to reacquaint ourselves with our backpacks and off to Columbia we go!
