It was a bit of a long trip, but we finally got in late last night. I have yet to meet our host Ricardo, who seems very nice by telephone, but was unable to meet us here at our arrival due to a compromiso. He left the key with the security guard though, and we let ourselves into his fabulous apartment overlooking the sea in the Barranco neighborhood of Lima. I tried to wait up for his return, but having been awake for more than 20 hours, I gave up at about 2am and went to bed. I am hoping to catch a glimpse of him this morning. Today we will head into town and check out the historic center I believe, as well as take care of a few things that we forgot to do before leaving. The most egregious of which is that I somehow stupidly didn’t think (after the 8 I had for India) that I would need any special vaccinations for this part of the world. I was wrong, I will be needing a Yellow Fever vax (especially if I want to go anywhere near the jungle areas) and so we will get one in the city today. After that, we should be able to settle in nicely for ceviche, pisco and coca.
