We're in Lima

We got in yesterday without incident, and promptly started settling into the apartment, making the beds, putting up the curtains, and doing a bit of grocery shopping.

This morning we went with Diego to buy a bed, a dresser, and a pair of mattresses. So, thus far, our time has been largely spent taking care of errands. Not much fun, but Hey! we're running errands in Lima!

Tomorrow my uncle Willy will be driving us up the coast a bit, northward, to visit the pre-inca ruins at Caral. Caral has recently been discovered to have been the earliest known urbanization in the Americas. I'm rather looking forward to that trip, and Willy -being an anthropologist and having been an archaeologist- is an ideal person to take it with.
