Day one in Lima, fog lingers over the city throughout the morning. During my first exploration I find little in the Miraflores area of interest. A visit to Huaca Pucllana provides distraction for an hour but this is a modern, built up part of the city, and I could be in any city suburb in the world really. However during the afternoon the sun seems to miraculously appear through the clouds, and the possibility of getting some photos taken on this first day increases tenfold.
Down to the beach is the natural place to go, amongst lovers on the promenade, surfers returning from the sea and fishermen, I scope it out and pick a spot on Playa Waikiki.
Next stop – Cusco, tomorrow morning – into the mountains, with a reinforcement from England to arrive tonight..
