Our itinerary for the day included a visit to the Lorca Museum, a wonderful repository of treasures of Peruvian antiquities and a site of magnificent gardens. I will be doing a post when I get home about the museum. It definitely deserves its own moment in the spotlight.
Yesterday was a more leisurely day, with a lot of walking around the neighborhood in which our group was staying and lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Pacific. The third photograph shows the view from the restaurant.
Looking out to the Pacific Ocean.
The group I'm traveling with is very friendly and I'm enjoying getting to know them. The only hitch to a so far perfect trip is my suitcase is still wandering around, with no arrival date in sight. I've bought a few things and one of the women loaned me a extra pair of pants and two shirts, so I'm down okay. But I will be doing a lot better when my suitcase and I are together.
I'm now in Cusco, in the Andes. Today is a relaxed day getting used to the 10,000 foot altitude. We had lunch at Peruvian restaurant, and in a little while we're going on a shopping expedition, which I'm looking forward to.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!
