Vacation Days: Lima, Peru

Saturday, September 27, 2014
Hola blog amigos! Picking up where I left off in my South and Central American adventure, I'm going to rewind to the beginning of the trip and share with you my visit to Lima! Even though I spent a total of roughly 11 hours there (specifically in the trendy Miraflores neighborhood) before bouncing off to Cusco, I was able to sneak in a little sightseeing and have some amazing food (OBviously).

So let's get started!

^ How did that picture get in there? Huh...

The hostel I was supposed to stay in looked like this. But they were booked solid, so they put me up in an apartment that looked like this:

I mean, if you insist.

I managed to grab dinner at the lovely Huaca Pucllana. The restaurant overlooks the Pucllana Ruins, which are located smack dab in the middle of Lima. The food and view were absolutely breathtaking.

Peruvians are very proud of their Pisco Sours. And rightly so.

Because, #wine.

I was able to deduce that these were peeled potatoes with some cheese dip. I had no idea what I was ordering ever, but luckily it was all phenomenal.

I just made sure to train myself to say this: "No mariscos, por favor, unless you'd like to give my epi-pen a whirl, which I'll admit could be a barrel of fun!"

Again, I'm not really sure what you are, but you were delicious.

Look familiar? In the background that's Pucllana during the day.

And there you have it - my quick and delicious 11-hour stay in Lima! I've got posts on Cusco and Panama City coming your way soon. Are you pumped? I'm pumped.

Oh, and here's the lovely breakfast I had, courtesy of the great hostel I stayed at!

South America, you sure are tasty.
