bright lights, big city

After spending the two days on an island using solar power, sleeping in a mud hut and visiting with sheep, it was a stark contrast when this girl and that guy landed in the sprawling city of Lima. The lights were bright, the stars were hard to see, the noise was loud. It felt like being back in Chicago! This girl marveled on how easily it is to fall back into habit. That guy picked up his pace, city walking is what this girl calls it. They immediately looked out of place with mud on their hiking boots, dirt smeared on their jackets and unshowered hair. Yet after a quick stop at their hotel in Miraflores, the two were back on the town. This girl put on her best clothes (that did not smell) and off they went to enjoy a late dinner at La Trattoria di Mambrino, followed by a (second!) dessert at Dunkin' Donuts (yes, guilty.).Knowing they wanted to wake up early to spend some time in Lima before the bus ride to Ica, they called it a night after the 3rd donut and dreamed of the next, and last, destination.

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable. Clifton Fadiman
