Today was our first full day in Peru! After a late night of flying and getting to our hotel, we had the day off. As a result, a bunch of us went and explored different parts of Lima. We stopped by a local mall and took a taxi downtown to see the Catacombs and the Plaza. While out, I also had a chance to try lucuma de leche, which is a delicious Peruvian fruit milkshake. After a day of sightseeing, the evening was capped off by a dinner party hosted by a family who has supported our trip for many years. I’m excited and can’t wait for what’s more to come.
