All is good with Sprinter Life. We’re just bumping along here in Lima, literally.
Life = doctor appointments every 2 weeks, lamaze classes, learning to fold laundry that looks like it belongs to a barbie doll, and all kinds of new chores since Stevie claims she can no longer bend over. I have my doubts. This may well be one of her best ploys yet… but I oblige her.
(Thanks for the beautiful dress Richard, says Stevie)
Lima is a destination every overlander travels through on the Pan-American Highway, so we’re getting visits from travelers on their way south and north. It’s cool to hook up with them as they roll through.
Lately we’ve been hanging out with James and Lauren from Home On The Highway. They actually took over our apartment up in Huanchaco and are moving a bit slower than most nomads on the Pan-Am. They’ve already been down to Lima twice to hang out. Great people!
We’ve also been making a few good friends in the local Lima community. Royce, April, and baby Piper are from Oregon, but have been posting up in Peru for the last year. Piper was born here in Lima and we’ve received a ton of valuable information from these guys.
Overall I have to say that Lima has been a huge surprise for me. Almost everyone told us about what a horrible city this is, but we’re actually really enjoying it. It’s exactly what we needed.
