I finally made it to Lima, where I am staying at the Antigua Miraflores Hotel. Because no one sleeps well on a long flight—regardless of what they may claim—I am a bit groggy. All the more so as I have just made the acquaintance of the Peruvian national drink, the Pisco Sour, a brandy and egg white cocktail that is as smooth as a baby’s bum.
Today was dedicated to cleaning up loose ends. I got lost several times, and I covered approximately ten miles on foot, but I did manage to
- Locate the South American Explorers, which had moved a mile from its old 135 Piura adress.
- Obtain my train ticket for the Andean Explorer route between Puno and Cusco
- Buy some prescription meds over the counter that my pharmacy muffed back in Los Angeles
Tomorrow, I visit the Museo Larco and the National Museum of Anthropology, which should pretty much take up the whole day.
