Lima: Last day in Peru

Our last day in Peru was spent touring around Lima.  Remember that we were losing people left and right this day.  Even I ended up feeling very ill!!  I don't have a ton of pictures because I wasn't feeling well and many of the sights we saw didn't allow cameras.

This first picture is on the beach in Lima and it is the love park.  It is here that the world record for the longest kiss was made.

 Who knew that there was a historical sight like this in Lima.  Whats left of this city is from the ancestors of the Inca's.  They existed around 900 years before the Inca's.  Each of these bricks were made by hand in this matriarchal society.  This sight was massive considering how old and primitive it was!!!
It literally exists right in the center of Lima ... so cool!

This is the cathedral that the catacombs are under.  The catacombs are creepy and cool, but we weren't allowed to take pictures inside the tombs.

(do you see all the pigeons hanging out on the cathedral.  At this point we were all really sick!)

We also visited the gold museum. It was VERY cool!!!!  There were even Incan mummy's.  It is unbelievable that the entire collection (actually the entire museum) is owned my one person!  Talk about OBSESSION!!!!

This is some of our group after waiting for someone to show up to report our lost luggage.  We were at the end of a VERY long trip home ... can you tell?

Who wouldn't be happy coming home to this????
Home Sweet Home

Those sights are amazing...but the best part is the drawings from the kids-cute.
