The trip from Boston to Panama City was uneventful. I was lucky enough to have the middle seat vacant and my seat-mate was quiet or slept throughout the entire flight. I think I saw part of the Panama Canal as we were landing. I'll have to leave that to another time though.
|Lima from my hotel|
I actually got into Lima last evening and spent a relaxing night at a hotel in San Isidro. This morning I awoke and was met by my cousin Peg for breakfast. We had a wonderful morning together, but it was too short a time to get caught up on the past 40 years or so since we last saw one another. I'm now at the airport awaiting my flight to Cusco. No worries though, I will be back in Lima to spend a few days with her in mid-February on my way home. I just realized that I didn't even get a picture with her today! I can not forget to get lots of them next time we're together.
After getting unpacked, Señora Rosa (my landlady) dropped me off at the 'super mercado' so that I could get a bit of food for today. It was more like a convenience store than a grocery store that we're used to. On the walk back to the apartment I missed my street and had a moment of panic because I didn't have the address with me. But I ended up going around the block again and found it. Oh well, at least now it's hopefully engraved in my brain.
