My first stop in Peru was it's capital city, Lima. I didn't spend that much time exploring it though so don't expect any words of wisdom yet... I have a few guided tours of the city later on my trip so you can expect some more info then... My time so far in Lima has been spent on drinking and eating mainly... Although I did find time to take a few pictures:
I can recommend the Pisco Sours, a Peruvian cocktail comprising of Pisco, (a Peruvian brandy) lemon juice, egg whites, ice and a dash of bitters. It's rather nice, although I have found the sourness varies somewhat depending on which bar/restaurant you're in...
As for food, well the lomo saltado is very good. Lumps of beef steak with strips of red onion and tomato, served with chips, rice and corn. Very tasty.
The one annoying thing here is internet access. Although the connections are usually pretty fast the computers are usually pretty shite, making it a pain to do anything. Therefore don't expect me to be updating this blog that often! (Having said that I never did when I was in America and had great internet access...)
