Enough Stairs For A Lifetime

Down by the ocean we had lunch at Tony Roma's on a nice outdoor patio. We watched numerous hang-gliders soaring. Each one carried one tourist and was operated by a local guide. They launched from the clifftop and rode the air currents that came in off the ocean. It was scary just watching. Maybe I will try it in my next incarnation.

The only problem we encountered in Lima was a counterfeit bill I obtained from an ATM at a bank near our hotel. Pat tried to buy something with it, and the store would not accept it. Its denomination was 50 soles, about $17 U.S. We are certain that it came from the bank's ATM, but complaints to the bank were not successful. They insisted that it could not have come from their machine. We ate the loss.
