    Lima, Peru

    January 7, 2017 in Peru ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    After searching for waves and not really finding amazing swell we decided to finish with a week in the mountains around Cusco which is where Machu picchu is. However a couple of days in Lima seemed appropriate as its on the way (also has surf).
    After a bus ride through the night we found a nice hostel near the beach in trendy Mira flores droped off the laundry and i had a surf which wasn't all that bad.
    Later that night we went out to a salsa club and finally saw a salsa band and danced the night away.
    In the morning we set off on a free walking tour of Lima. The tour was a nice change and we saw the changing of the guard (which is a weird ridiculous event that happens daily) along with cathedrals, chocolate tasting, coffee tasting and pisco sours tasting (the local coctail).
    It is the rain season but in lima it has only rained twice since records have been kept. 1979 and 2001.
    Tomorrow we fly to Cusco (buses take 22hrs!) Its rain season there but it's January average is 60ml.
