We arrived in Lima Peru today! 10 years ago we arrived in Lima on our way home from our 8 month around the world trip. 10 years to the week to be exact. We dont remember much from Lima last time, but we are re tracing our steps to Cuzco, Machu Picchu and the Amazon... this time with kids! We are staying in a small guesthose by the sea, the weather is like Southern California - its perfect. We spent the evening at the seaside park with families flying kites, playing in a cool skate park with lots of little kids and watching the sunset over the Pacific. Ordered up some dominoes pizza to the room and the kids are watching Spongebob in Spanish. More to come.. stay tuned.

We found an amazing deal for our upcoming Peru trip from perutravels.net, a travel agency in Lima. They got us Lima-Puerto Maldanado (rainforest)-Cuzco for less than half off the regular rate on LAN's website! When buying 4 ticktets, thats alot of $$! Granted, we had to give our credit card over the phone to a guy in Lima, Peru, but the e-tickets were emailed right away and verified with LAN. Deals are out there still, you just have to work for it. I would highly recommend using perutravels.net to anyone heading that way. Also, Kayak.com is the best travel deal website going.

Why do we prefer small guesthouses over huge resorts..? Hmm...
