In Lima

In the morning, still in Nazca, we had breakfast and packed up our things. It was getting hot, so we decided to go for a quick dip in the pool before leaving. Well... the quick dip lasted longer than expected... and we decided to stay another night. Lisa had come down with a cold so we thought the hot weather would do her good. We had a good chat with Andre at the pool. He was one of the Polish guys we had met the other day. Andre also was joined by his wife in Nazca.

We used the afternoon to catch up on some paperwork and do a few things on the bike. We headed to our favorite spot for dinner, really cheap chicken and chips at the main square. There was also a display in the square of photographs and explanations of the different shapes of the Nazca lines.

We were up bright and early the next morning, had breakfast and said good bye to our Polish friends. We left Nazca and went to the viewing platform for the Nazca lines just outside of town.

We had a quick stop for lunch at a fuel station, a couple of chicken sandwiches and Inka Cola. It total was less than $2! Grif noticed that Sammy wasn't running 100%. Something to keep our eyes on.

Inca Cola - tastes like cream soda, my new favorite!
After another couple of breaks, including one for ice cream, we were in Lima, in Saturday afternoon traffic. There was lots of honking... from impatient drivers! They honk at everything! We made it to the hotel unscathed.

After getting our room, Grif spent a couple of hours, riding around trying to locate a tire shop. He came back with no luck. The hotel is located close to Kennedy Park in Miraflores. There are lots of places to eat in the area, MacDonald's, Pizza Hut, Burger King... but we chose a local restaurant and had ceviche, salads, rice, chicken and more seafood!
