This morning, February 23rd, we flew from Cusco to Lima where we were assigned to a room in the same hotel as before. This was somewhat odd as we all, except Kurt, were taking a flight back home that evening.

Once we were settled in, we had lunch at a local restaurant and then spent the rest of the afternoon touring Lima.

Well, I'm having a beer!

The rest of the afternoon we felt tired and went to our hotel room to relax and get ready for our farewell dinner. The dinner was super, including performances by professional dancers. It gave us a good feeling - as if we weren't already feeling excellent.

After finishing the farewell dinner, I packed my camera into my carry-on bag, intending to take it out again after passing airport security. However, because we departed in different directions, we did not see any of our fellow tourists, and I ended up leaving the camera packed since there was nobody whose photo I wanted to take.

Oh, well. It was a wonderful trip and, because we enjoyed it so much, we have begun to plan our next OAT trip.

As I initially stated, Corina, our super tour guide, was, and still is, the best guide we have ever had. We raise our glasses to this amazing woman for having guided us so superbly. Thank you very much, Corina. Lynda and I hope to do another tour with you someday.
