The Search for Paddington Bear (26/04/07)

Well i've arrived in Lima, Peru without any dramas or problems. Only exception would be the Spanish airline. honest to god what is it with the Spanish mentality of "it will get done when it gets done". First they move the check in time forward 20 minutes so we (myeslf and the other passengers) all dutifully arrived at the gate at the alloted time. 30 mins later we still have seen no movement and no explanation as to why. Only when i asked them if the flight was still going to take off on time did they, grudgingly,start letting us all on to the plane!

Anyway we arrived more or less on time in Lima and the Hostel (Kusillu's) is very good. Nice and modern,clean and friendly. Lima itself is a strange one.

For a city of 8 million people there doesn't seem to be a wealth of great bars. Haven't, and won't, venture out of miraflores on the advice of most people due to it being unsafe in other areas at night. Had a few drinks in The Olde Pub (don't ask) as it was the onlyone which was showing the Chamions League football. It was OK for that but generally pretty shit. Full of old European and American guys working here and lerring at the young bar girls.

On the plus side i leave tomorrow for Cusco and i've heard that is a great town so i'm looking forward to that.
