Scenery flying into Peru was spectacular, the mountains are immense - I don't know words big enough to describe, and really bizzare to fly below the horizon... Arrived in Lima late afternoon, and then to a hostel in Miraflores... driving is mad, but nothing compared to Vietnam! - and only one minor collision on the forty minute drive.
In summary, I am alive.
PS - I offically hate Orange (rather than the usual disliking); they said my mobile would work here, but it doesn't - not even in Holland - so I cannot send nor receive anything =(
