Bye bye

April 29, 2014

 26.4.14. Overnight bus to Lima. Pretty horrendous. Got about 4 hours' sleep. The driver kept exceeding the 89 kph speed limit set for the bus, which triggered a beeping alarm. So kept getting woken up. Plus it was too cold - the temperature went down to 15 degress C at one point as the air con was still blasting away. Anyways, arrived in Lima at 6.45 a.m. Easily caught bus to Miraflores. Hadn't had a wee for 9.5 hours. Loo in bus overflowing, according to Vince. Me too squeamish to look. And felt too sick and dizzy to cope with bus station bogs. Finally got a wee at 8.15 a.m. Fortunately found a cafe - Bambo, sort of South American McDonalds. A wee and a latte.

27.4.14. Vince has insisted on Miraflores. I don't know why. Full of gringos. Dirty beach and sea. Really expensive. The fact that there was no sun, just complete cloud, sealed it and Vince didn't want another night there.

28.4.14. Took bus into central Lima to meet Graham Jones, an ex work colleague of mine who is travelling in South America. We've spent all day with him. Had a walk around, looking at stuff, having lunch, etc. We have got a room in the same hostal as Graham and will be having some grub and booze very soon. We will be up at 4.30 a.m. to start the journey home.


I have loved South America and have very much enjoyed blogging. But this is the last one, folks. On Wednesday we will be back in England. I can hardly imagine it. Am so looking forward to seeing family and friends again.
