Fun in Lima
We had a great couple of days in Lima, and it was gloriously hot! It was incredible to leave a very rainy and misty Cusco and arrive just over an hour later in a steaming hot Lima. The trip made an interesting benchmark, as we compared how we felt when we arrived in Lima 2 months ago, and how we felt now. We enjoyed the experience much more this time, maybe because we weren't surrounded by suitcases and Immigrations took 1 and a half hours, rather than several hours. We also took the opportunity to do some things that we can't do in Cusco. Thanks to Margaret's generous babysitting, we managed to see the King's Speech, which was fantastic. We also went bowling which is Daniel's personal favourite. We tracked down a sports club where we could go swimming. This was also a big deal for us, as back in the UK we used to go swimming most weeks, and the children both love it. It isn't impossible in Cusco, but it is pretty difficult. And we went to the zoo, which was fantastic! We really enjoy living in Cusco, but it is weird to adjust to living somewhere so different from what we are used to. I didn't think that I would be so bothered about going to the cinema, but it was a real treat to be able to do this. It was also wonderful to return to Cusco, our home!
