March 6-9, 2017 Our bus took a few stops between Lima and Paracas. We’re taking the Peru Hop bus, which is a hop-on hop-off bus that connects most major tourist destinations in Peru. That also means they stop at some scenic spots on the way, to break up long rides or simply show something noteworthy. Aside from the viewpoint stop I mentioned in the last post, we stopped at a brick-and-clay wood-fired bakery for a light lunch.


March 3-6, 2017 After a well-deserved nap, we headed into the busy Lima streets. We stayed at the 1900 Hostel, which is near Lima’s old center and government buildings. We could see Peru’s equivalent of the Smithsonian simply by stepping out the front door. We walked around the block looking for food, and quickly found some amazing ceviche. Ceviche is basically raw seafood in lemon juice(?

Las Vegas to Lima

March 2-3, 2017 We left our Vegas Airbnb at the very reasonable time of 10am. A short Uber to the airport later, we were in the security line, which was also short. We’d shown up 3 hours early for our international flight, and got to do a lot of sitting around as a result. (I will still show up early next time, because I much prefer sitting around killing time over being stressed out in a line that seems to be moving too slowly.
