I see the travel marketing people have taken to writing advertorials for people’s blogs, sometimes offering as much as $10. (Ten whole dollars?!)
After 6 weeks here in Lima, Peru, it may not seem like I’ve done very much, but I disagree!

Some photos from a leisurely visit to Parque Kennedy and El Parque del Amor here in Miraflores (Lima).
Around here, an open garage door earns you a full house and property search. Go security!
Perfect for kids, the “largest fountain complex in the world” is something inexpensive to do most nights of the week here in Lima.
The deciding factors of how long I’ll stay here in Peru are mostly out of my hands.
Happy Easter! Give your egg-hunting legs a break and read everything I know about Lima/Peru so far.
