Day 9 - Old Lima

Lima, Peru

Not much sleep last night. In the morning, take a taxi to the old city of Lima. The central square is on a grand scale, and a strong police presence near the presidential palace. Tour the catacombs under the old Franciscan monastery, including some glimpses of 16th century colonial life in the frescoes, but no photos allowed inside.

Missed the changing of the guard. Get the metro bus back to the hotel to flake out.
