Day 1 – Lima and Arequipa

I awoke rested and ready to go. I wanted to see what I couldn’t see when I arrived at 1 am. Where was I? Down in the dining room a wall painted with a surfing theme brightened the room. The theme fits the owner Cristien’s interests.

Cristien is on the Peruvian surf team and has driven from San Francisco to Peru riding the waves all along the coasts of North and South America. I told him my husband Gregg had a woodie and drove the California coast from Stinson to Santa Cruz doing the same thing back in the day. Cristien’s wife Kelly is from Santa Cruz, but she was off leading a tour in Cusco, so I did not meet her.
