Really like Lima. Went down to the beach yesterday afternoon – the weather has been glorious, really hot and sunny. Unfortunately I’ve got a rucksack full of thermals!
This morning my hostel manager called on me to be a Spanish/English interpreter. Never thought that would happen – obviously it was a desperate situation.
I leave Lima tomorrow. Last night I went out for a couple of drinks in the bohemian district of Barranco. Made mistake of getting in an unlicenced taxi, purely because the driver was female and therefore presumably safe. As we drove the wrong way down a dual carriageway, I had cause to regret my decision. But I’m still alive to tell the tale.
