Extreme Peru: Part Five


After endless flights, missed connections, and horrendous layovers, we finally landed in Lima. I don't even know how long it actually took us to get there, after we consider the many delays we faced.

Prior to arriving in Lima, we were told to arrange ground transportation through a company called Taxi Green. They operate a counter inside the airport where customers pay before going outside. By paying in advance, we apparently avoid potential conflicts with the driver. In a worst case scenario, some people have even been assaulted by cab drivers. The safest bet is to always call in advance from a recognized company, like Taxi Green.

We found a relatively inexpensive hotel and got the first restful night's sleep in several days. The photograph above is a view from my window at night.
