Lima

It was a sort of twiddly thumb day to day as we wait for the tour to start tomorrow.

We took a taxi into the centre of town. The cathedral, the archbishops palace and the presidents palace are all on the same square. Handy that! The square is decorated in a lovely shade of canary yellow.

We watched the changing of the guard at the presidents palace. First on was a military band who we’re lead by a goose-stepping conductor and they stepped aside for the red and blue guys to do their marching.

It was hard to find a taxi to take us back but we got back just in time to meet Juan Carlos, (our contact from church at home).

He and Penny showed us the poorer area of town where they had spent many years working. They invited us home for tea. We had avocado picked from a tree in their garden. Delicious!

We’ve met our tour group and will set off at 7am in the morning.

Hasta la vista,

Val
