Lima, Peru

Just a quick update:  SSW Spouse and I arrived in Lima, Peru after midnight last night.  Today, we strolled around Miraflores, where we are staying and then took a city tour.  The city tour was really interesting, in spite of the fact that it involved a tour bus and about 25 other people.  The most interesting part of the tour was the Franciscan Monastery that we were able to tour, along with its catacombs, that was built in the early 1600s.  The associated cathedral was quite spectacular, too.

We were also lucky enough to stumble into the annual flower festival at a park near our hotel.  The park was filled with an impressive array of live and cut flower vendors. 

Tomorrow, we are headed to Cuzco.
