The national museum


Today is the first day of the official meet-up. As usually it starts with meeting each other at the church. When René and I arrived the first one we couldn’t miss was Travel-man Mark! After arriving of the European 4 and a few more we took cabs to bring us to Museo Nacional de Antropolgia y Arquelogia at
Plaza Bolivar, Pueblo Libre. After taking a few funny pictures outside with the guard and some schoolgirls we went inside the museum. This museum gives a good idea of what the different cultures in Peru have left us behind. You better take your time to visit the museum because it is quit big. This museum is a must to see and is also one of the cheapest in Lima. We had Yadi as our tourguide
J and she did a great job.

Mark, Stacey, Rene, Fransisco, me, Nelly, Yadi and James.
Of course she had a hard job to keep the TravBuddies together!

After this visit we got back to the Miroflores area and had lunch at Punta Agul. There we met 2 more TB’s, Nelly and Stacey. Yadi was glad about this, now she isn’t the only girl in the group
J. After the lunch everybody left to the hotels and Hostels. René and I decided to check the internet for TB-news. At 5 we met again at the church to visit the Archaeological Complex ‘Huaca Pucllana’. But we were just too late. It was closing. But they allowed us the get inside and take some pictures in front of this pyramid. So we had some extra time and spend it in the “love park”. After some crazy pictures we went to restaurant Brujas de Cachiche for some snacks and of course, a pisco sour. More TB’s arrived like Lili and Romaine.

Now we are in the mood to start the Karaoke-evening. There we met another TB’er Susan. More Pisco and beers were coming and we had fun till, again, very late. . . . . .
