Well here i am, Peru, Miraflores to be exact. We fly in Yesterday, the flight  was ok, i had nobody sitting next to me, so mine was a more comfortable  flight, i  had two glasses of white  wine,which was a very  good wine. I dunno how liz did on the  flight, she was seated somewhere else.
The bit  where you  leave the airport and drive to miraflores  is ummm, dangerous, its like a  bloody  war  zone, all broken  up houses and smashed up glass all around.  Kids  in  gangs and stuff.
Miraflores  on the other hand is fabulous, modern and like Panama city, but  i am  thinking  it was more  cheaper in Panama city than here.

  Our hostel is  $11 each, its a nice clean  new hostel, in  the center  of Miraflores.
Well the guide books  says english pub, two  in fact, one we couldnt  find, but one  we did, The old pub, which omg words  cannot  tell you how  fantastic this  pub looks,  brilliant, like the most  realistic pub i have seen.  It puts some  english  pubs  to shame.  Full wooden  beams and bar, chairs and  tables, all that  look proper  olde english. They sell english beer in here, but sadly no  cider. Tho there is a can  of strongbow on the  wall, its  empty dam  it. Now another reason i like this place is due to the fact there  is a SPURS  shirt hanging  on the  wall, and after months  of seeing  bloody Gooner shirts up and down Central America, finally i can see another spurs  top, and its the only club shirt on show!!! ha, only a england  top stands  next  to it.  This really made my day.
I dont know  why i end up on weird computers,but this one  is a living hell, the keyboard has a mind of  its own, so  not  my fault the text is all over the place... i think  i am  jinx with these  computers.
