Miraflores, Lima

Miraflores, Lima

On Sunday 20th May, I got up and ready, packed my bag, and was downstairs for breakfast at 7 am. During the ten minutes I was out on the terrace, mosquitos attacked me so I wouldn’t forget Panama too quickly.

Later we had a walk around the grounds of Hotel Santo Domingo and wanted to take the shuttle to Santo Domingo del Cerro, but the restaurant up there was closed and therefore there was no shuttle that Continue reading Goodbye Antigua
