I too should be surprised. I've been here in Peru for two full days and have yet to leave the cool comfort of the beachfront house I happened to find (the house also happens to be right in front of one of Peru's finest barrels). More on that shortly.
I arrived in Lima late at night and my driver Alexander gave me a full tour of the city's "Costa Verde" (Green Coast) before dropping me off at my hostal. He even bought me some potato chips and an Inca Kola (an unnaturally yellow and overly sweet Sprite), which I came to learn was such a popular soft drink that Coca Cola bought the company a few years ago to cut out the competition. After enduring 24 hours of flying – complete with four flights, I was understandably exhausted when I was shown to my room, and was too tired to do anything except fall asleep.
