Lima

And here we are again! Staying in the refreshingly idyllic neighbourhood of Barranco (way less touristy than Miraflores), all we wanted was a hot shower and a clean bed. We got all that and more at our accommodation 3B Barranco’s, a chic little B&B which was ideally located opposite a couple of good eateries. After a good night’s sleep, we braced ourselves for a last-minute shopping spree (gifts to take back home). Heading to the back to the Miraflores district, we fuelled up at that sangucheria on the corner of Kennedy Park which was always packed, La Lucha. Been meaning to try it for a while but never got round to it – wish we had visited there sooner –  the Chicharron was friggin’ fantastic. Filled with juicy, succulent, melt-in-the-mouth pieces of pork belly on top of layers of sweet potato with a special salsa criolla… BOOM! Sandwiches will never taste the same again. After devouring this and the delectable Huayro-french fries (and freshly squeezed juices might I add), we headed to the Inca market. Bought various goodies – t-shirts, jewellery, toys, magnets, key rings, you name it, they sell it. After eating & shopping, we took a stroll back in Barranco, along the cliffside. Then it was dinner and packing! Couldn’t believe the trip was over already (not including a 6 hour stopover in Santiago airport)… time flies when you’re having fun. I’d had the adventures of a lifetime. I’ll be back South America!
