Travel to Lima
Picked up early to go to the airport. After a 1 1/2 hour flight over almost complete desert, we arrived in Lima. Apparently Lima is the second largest city in the world in a desert. After arriving at our B&B, we went out walking and visited Huaca Pucllana, an adobe pyramid and complex which was built and used from 200 to 700 A.D. It has only been being excavated since 1981 or so. Before that it was simply a gravelly hill in the centre of town. So they're still working on it, both excavating and restoring what they have excavated.
After walking around the Miraflores neighbourhood and having lunch, we returned to our B&B for a rest. Then off to catch a city bus down to the Circuito Magico del Agua - a sound and light show in a large park with many fountains of different types.
