I skipped breakfast and only picked up a banana, a roll, and a juice to take to the meeting at 7. We found out what the day would be like and then boarded a bus to this fishing village. Lima is next to the ocean but is a desert. They only get about 2 inches of rain a year - moisture comes from almost constant humidity and 80% of time in clouds. Boat ride to rocks full of birds, seals, and penguins was fun. An hour to get there, an hour on the boats, and an hour back, Lunch was 4 blocks away from our hotel where they showed us how they make their national drink - Pisco sour. A few of us liked it and consumed 2 or 3 of the complimentary drink that we all got.

I napped and showered and wrote this in the afternoon. Debbie, Sara, and Megan walked to the beach! I was too pooped to pop!
