Day 2 (pt 1): LIMA! After arising at a far more reasonable hour, I joined my tour guide for a token half-day tour of Lima.

Our first stop after passing the Presidential Palace & Archbishops Cathedral was the Santo Domingo Church & monastery – a 17th century jewel in Lima’s crown. Here I learn a lot about the culture & religious leanings of Peruvians (such as how they managed to give the huge middle finger to the Spaniards and secretly keeping Incan traditions alive & melded with Catholic ones).
