I decided to go on the Odyssyes Unlimited 'Machu Picchu to the Galapagos' tour. They arrange the Smithsonian and some Alumni tours and actually seem to be extremely efficient! It helped that there were only 12 persons on the tour...... good as an initiation to tours!
.....with a view of the blocked freeway!
Traffic seems to be as bad in Lima as on 101 in the Bay Area!
We did tour Lima on the first day and visited the MALI museum.
The museum has a lot of interesting Pre Columbian ceramics......
