Our Trio's Down to Two

Lima, Peru

Back in Lima it was Jams, Harry and I. Originally, the plan was to head north to Columbia where we'd all part ways. However, after seeing Bolivia's snow caps and remembering that Air Canada forced me to buy a ticket to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, AND thinking about the logistics of my trip, I decided it would be best to head east to Bolivia and part ways sooner than later.

In light of my decision, Harry also swapped his plans of Columbia for Iquitos, a Peruvian city on the Amazon that's only accessible by plane or boat.

The three of us had just a few short nights in Lima. The first included bargaining for a hotel room because all of the hostels in Mira Flores, the Whyte Ave area, were filled up. We negotiated her down from $150US to $35US for a two-bed room with a nice bathroom and access to a gorgeous balcony, where we held our after party following a wild night out. The down side is I had to sleep on the floor, which I didn't realise how frequent I'd be doing after that.

The following night was Harry's last and sadly uneventful. I was sick and thoroughly tired from many long bus rides over a short time, so I didn't have it in me for another night out.

Send a Compliment

Everyone still misses you at work Ryan. No one slings those insults like you do (the new guy thinks I'm funny when I'm not trying to be at all... it's a little weird.)
