Peru & Ecuador Adventure

Our South America adventure lasted 23 days.  We left Tucson on March 25, 2001 to fly to Dallas.  Our plane had mechanical problems, so American Airlines gave us meal vouchers until a new plane arrived.  We left 4 hours late for our flight to Lima. (First of three transportation breakdowns.)  We arrived in Lima about 4 a.m.  We did get a couple of hours sleep before we had breakfast and our first briefing and tour in Lima.

Our Peru tour guide was Jose Medina.  Our guide for Lima was Maribella.

Our hotel was in the Miraflores district which is the upper class section of town.  On our stay in Lima we walked to the Pacific Ocean and visited an underground mall on the cliff overlooking the water.  We also walked to Kennedy Square and visited some of the local stores.  The tours we took and sites we saw are listed on the left under the pictures list.
