From the airport, went for a traditional Peruvian lunch at Cesar's house (Cesar is a good friend of Alvaro, a Peruvian friend of mine from law school). Here's Cesar in his lovely backyard. Lunch was great, and afterwards he took me out for desert. More on the food in the "comida tipica" section.
After lunch, I headed to Lima's main plaza. First, I saw the cathedral, which features Francisco Pizarro's tomb.
Next, I ducked around the corner to see San Francisco Monestary and the famous catacombs underneath. Pictures are not permitted inside, but here's what the outside looks like:
Then I circled back to the main plaza (called, shockingly enough, the Plaza de Armas) and got these shots as the sun was setting.
I closed out the evening with dinner and drinks with Cesar, and got up at 3:30am to catch my flight to New York (with a full day layover in Panama) the next day.
