The stars are lining up for us today. Early this morning we got on a flight from Cusco to Lima. After we landed I got an email indicating that some arrangements were made so that we could depart Lima Saturday night instead of Sunday night. That gets us home only one day later than our original plan. Great news! We are anxious to get home.
I had a hotel in Lima reserved and although we don't need to spend the night I kept the room so we could nap and shower before heading home. After we dropped off our luggage at the hotel we had lunch at McDonalds. Then we visited some tourist spots.
We toured the old San Francisco cathedral. It was interesting. Under ground are some catacombs where we saw a bunch of human bones. Kind of creepy.
Our hotel was more like an apartment. It seemed a shame to have it for such a short time. We took a nap and then went back to the airport where we had Papa John's Pizza for dinner. We're at that point in the trip where we just want American food that we are used to.
Now begins our journey home. We'll have a red-eye flight from Lima to Fort Luderdale. Then a flight to New York. Then a 9-hour layover and lastly a late night flight to Salt Lake City!
