Saying Good bye to Peru
Day 15 Fri last day Got up early and took the bus to the Cusco airport. We bid goodbye to Harvey, Manuel and Roger, the driver. I noticed something interesting about the names of the people nere in Peru. If we were expecting spanish names we were surprised as many of the names we encountered were American, or I should say USA as these people are American too just South. The flight was a quick 1 1/2 hours to Lima which would take 22 hours if driven because of the mountains and the condition of the roads going through them. We were picked up by another tour bus which drove us 45 minutes to the Puro Peru restaurant. whe we heard it was a buffet everybody growned. But were we surprised at the quality and selection! There was every kindof Peruvia food imaginable along with a grill to ordersection and also a sushi bar. The last was a surprise until we remembered the Japenese decendants from the railroad building years On to our hotel, the Swisshotel in San Isador a suburb of Lima. It seemed fitting that we end at the same hotel that we started in. Some of the group were leaving later today so they were given a "day" room. Same as any other room wherethey could nap, shower or just relax before their flight. We all met at thebar a 7 as the group was going to leave at various time thereafter. We wished everyone goodbye, promising that we'll do this again.
