I've been in Peru for nine weeks now and it's going better than expected.

Miraflores is quite a nice area and we have an apartment right on the cliff looking over the ocean. Being on the 16th floor gives a fantastic 270 degree view of the ocean and around to the central part of Lima. However, being on the 16th floor wasn't that great during the earthquake!

I haven't had the chance to get out of Lima yet for any touring but will get around to it. I've been here before and have seen everything, so there's no rush. Planning on a 2 week tour in late October which will take in Lake Titicaca, Cuzco, Machu Picchu and the Amazon. Should a great trip.

Daily routine is generally:

0845 - 1015: Spanish lessons
1015 - 1200: Chores, play on the computer
1200 - 1400: Lunch
1400 - 1700: Study, or write
1700 - 2400: Dinner and market watch

I normally jump on randomly to play on ASF as well.

Weekends are a blurr of Pisco Sours and Chilean Vino.

Will update with anything of interest.....

Just have to put a picture of Machu Picchu up here. The reason why most tourists come to Peru, or South America for that matter.

    Hi Snake. Been tapping out a book for the past 18 months. It's about religion, humanity, and the meaning of life, disguised as a travel book. It's pretty ordinary. More for self interest than anything else. Kennas

    Had a 3 and 1/2 hour lunch with Pisco's and friends and I think we will be struggling with 4 hours. Untidy!!

    Nice pic Kennas but you would think with such a great view the builders would get a move on and finish off damned quick.Just looks like an ugly building site with a great view at the moment!
