Mar 2, 2013 - Lima, Peru and Miraflores

Made it to Lima, Peru Getting out of the airport was already more adventure than we have had in a long time. You are first met by about 5000 taxi drivers that tell that whatever you are planning to do is very dangerous, unless you get into their taxi and they will take you for a ride, literally and figuratively. I always had this thing about taxi drivers and rather take the local bus. Of course it also took about $1.50 and 1 hour 40 minutes instead of $45 and 30 minutes to get to our destination. One of our first things we like to do in a...

Andie Mini Trip 2012

Mar 2, 2013 - Lima, Peru

For all of you following my trip I want to let you know that we are already in Cusco, Peru by the time you read this entry. Unfortunately on the second day in Peru I received the sad news that Willi, our old friend that I took care of for some time passed away. I was afraid that it might happen, since his health has been deteriorating, but I was still hoping to see him when I get back. The loss is a little difficult to deal with, I will really miss him. So it is really good that ever since we arrived in Peru our schedule has been packed. In...

Hello Everybody! Im in Lima, Peru. In the morning it was really dry and sweaty. In the afternoon, I went on a tour in the Main Square. The scenery was amazing. It was like I was in Heaven.

Back to they Andes it was as beautiful as pearls on a brides shiny...

Feb 13, 2013 - Week 20 - Arequipa, Huacachina, Paracas, Lima (Peru)

We arrived in Arequipa at 6am and grabbed a cab to the hostel we had booked only to be told we couldn’t check in until 11:30am. We curled up in the communal area to watch Sons of Anarchy on our laptop and wait. Once checked in we headed in to town to explore and to search for a Spanish school. Arequipa, although still beautiful, didn’t live up to Cusco. It’s very busy and they love using their car horns. After checking a couple of places and realising we really needed to start a course on a Monday we gave up (we’ll try to find somewhere...

Today starts with the instructions on our next few days to Machu Picchua and the realization that we are not going to be sleeping in in the next 4 days.

We get off by the old Bolivar Hotel in the Piazza San Martin. A gorgeous old hotel that they have maintained as it always was from the 1920 when famous Hollywood stars and musicians stayed. Truly...
