|This morning I got up to start the day with an early morning Lima tour. There was actually enough people for an English only tour. It was really nice to have some conversations today. I met a couple from Ireland who were on their honeymoon and doing a Gap tour to Chili and Argentina. Another couple was from Atlanta, who were leaving today. I had lunch with them. Their was a woman named Rosalie from Texas and a couple from England. We started the tour at Huaca Pucllana, a pyramid that was built by the Incas. It is a solid structure and flat on top where ceremonial and religious rituals were performed, mainly sacrifices. We then went to Colonial Lima and visited the Main Square that is surrounded by the Government Palace, Archbishops Palace, the Cathedral Basilica. It was beautiful. I saw the square last night, but it is different by day. We went to the museum of the Banco Central de Reserva, where we saw pottery, gold and textiles from early civilizations. Our last top was my favorite. Covento de San Francisco Convent of St Francis, which has the biggest display of religious art in America. I was sad I could not take pictures here as it was so beautiful. The catacombs were very interesting. There were thousands of bones and skulls in burial pits. They figured there were over 28000 people buried in these catacombs. I loved the courtyard of this church. I think I could have sat there for hours with the hundreds of pigeons. I am not sure why but it was an extremely peaceful place. I thought I would make it to the church that had the burial grounds of St Rose de Lima and St Martin Pores. I guess it was close. I will have to go back there at the end of my trip. I seem to be enjoying visiting these churches. I had a wonderful Peruvian lunch today with a few of the people from my tour. It was so good. The restaurant was recommended by the trip guide. The seafood was totally amazing. I tried my first Pisco Sour, oficial Perurvian drink which I am told is stronger than tequila. It got rid of my migraine I seem to have today, however it seems to be back. I also had an amazing dessert that was very sweet. I need to find out what it is called. I guess it was a Peruvian dessert. I had a bit of a siesta after lunch...backed my bags for tomorrow to be ready to leave and then went for a walk. I stopped in a little crepe coffee shop and had an amazing mocha, hoping it would help my migraine. It was so yummy. I did not feel like shopping at the market that was also there, but will go there at the end of my trip. I am getting ready to soon meet my travel group. I am ready to leave Lima.It was just enough time to spend here. The population here is 9 million. WOW, no wonder driving is insane.
