Off to Lima, Peru!

"Travel Day" – Today I travel to Lima, Peru! We got up before 3AM to make our way to the airport for a 6:30AM flight to Miami. Traveling with me are friends Preston, Sarah, and Sabrina. We discovered the secret to avoiding long lines at the airport! Apparently, if you get there earlier than anyone in their right mind would want to wake up, you don’t have to wait! Our flight would first take us to Miami, then on to Lima.

One thing is for sure… I am a foodie, and, for that, I am not ashamed. One of my favorite things about traveling is experiencing local food. Immediately upon arriving in Miami, we went straight to La Carreta to get some Cuban espresso and some fried plantains. A couple hours later, we were back for lunch and Cuban sandwiches!

 

Our flight was a little delayed leaving Miami, but we arrived in Lima with no major setbacks about 8:30PM. We were warned about some of the crazy driving, and I can confirm, it is not for the faint of heart. We got to the Hotel Senorial in the Miraflores region of Lima. Needless to say, after all the travel, I was ready for some sleep, and I had no trouble getting it! Tomorrow we’ll be planning for our medical campaign. Buenos noches!
