Lima continues to fail to amaze. Tried to visit some Inca ruins outside town, but they were closed and a look over the fence didn’t impress. The nearby freeway, oil refinery, slums, and dirty beaches with dead birds that vie for the discriminating traveler’s attention made Lima look good again so we returned.

Which takes a while because Lima has no real public transport system. There’s a number of competing bus companies that serve major streets, with a guy shouting destinations out the bus door like a souvenir vendor hawking Inca masks. There are no schedules, marked stops, or reliable connections. But we found our way. Can’t praise GPS units with preloaded OSM maps enough.

No pictures worth showing today, so here’s some more liquid bubble gum in three-liter bottles.
