Hola Lima - First Impressions




Dear all,

we arrived in Lima a few days ago and I’m still a bit jet lagged but happy.

After a long European winter we enjoy lots of sun and warm temperatures.

Our container has already arrived at the Callao Port, but will be transported to our apartment hopefully next

week. It will be great to unpack and having all my stuff and kitchen accessories finally with me again.

Until then, I would like to share with you a few pictures and impressions of Lima, hope you enjoy it!

Containers waiting for their final destination at the Port in Lima (among them, and impossible to identify, ours)

During the custom inspection of our container- watch out for the Ferragamo-like security shoes!








The green heart of the city- view from our apartment

A wonderful selection of seafood hors d’oeuvres  together with the national soft drink Inca Cola - what else!

  10. Hello, Daniela! I popped over to visit after seeing a sweet comment left on my blog from you. I read your "About Me" section and see that you are quite the world traveler! How wonderful is that??!??!?! Terrific! And now you are living in Lima, Peru! My sister has visited and worked there, and she just loved it.

    I wish you much success as you continue your cultural exchange and get adjusted to living in warm & wonderful Peru. I can only imagine what great fun that must be! Thank you again for dropping by to visit my blog earlier!
