We don't get up very early, since we just had to make a mini-bag, meet Paulina again and set foot again for civilization. Sandoval Lake was born beautiful again, with all his life in the middle of the morning. We expected a long journey of means of transport and hours to return to Lima and put an end to this experience: 40 min of canoe, 50 min of trail, mini breakfast (8 PEN), 35 min of river boat Madre de Dios above, 20 min of bus to the Airport, 40 min of flight to Cusco ( USD 3.47 of national airport fees each) and without getting off the plane another 65 min flight to Lima. There is nothing.
It was 15'05 when we left the national terminal of Lima Airport, destination at Casa Andina Classic Miraflores Centro (ARTICLE IN CHAVETAS WITH ALL THE DETAILS HERE), where we would stay our last night. It's been more than 15 days since we started the adventure here, in Miraflores. We feel a sense of longing and sadness to remember our illusions to take that first Southern Cross to Paracas that early morning of May 2.
Lima receives us as they told us it was and not how it was DAY 2 travel of splendid sun, with a thick haze that barely makes the Pacific stand out. He seems to know that we are leaving and he has refused to show us that sun that has accompanied us the 16 days of travel, without missing any day. Does it rain in Peru? If we had not seen the damage in the Cusco area we would have sworn no.
As a farewell, after an afternoon of last shopping (43.30 PEN) we have left an attraction that made us very excited, the MAGIC WATER CIRCUIT inaugurated 2 years ago. They say it is a great experience, very similar to the great shows of the Disneyworld or the Expos and so we check
More of 13 sources, each with its theme, of different lights, colors, shapes and "dances" They make us enjoy the last night in the Peruvian capital. Especially impressive are two, which is considered the highest source in the world, whose central "jet" reaches the height of 80 m (and we can swear that it is impressive to see how it rises) and a show with music, lightning, images, lights and colors that makes a review of what is Peru, which almost makes us tear, reviewing our experiences, as if made for us were: Nazca, Colca, Machu Picchu ...
There were many complaints with this park, since we must not forget that Lima is in the Peruvian desert and the water is scarce. In fact, it is in the TOP10 of cities most affected by global warming. Not obtainable, once opened it has had very good acceptance. We take advantage and eat a couple of puppies in the park (9 PEN)
We continue through the park and see several types of fountains. Curious is the Source of Desires, where going under and asking for a wish they say that it is fulfilled ... What have you asked for this time Paula?
Another source is a kind of source-attraction, where the jets vary in position and people get in trying to avoid them. We also see another one in the form of a pyramid while we observe the curious way of using the mobile that the locals have, as if it were a walkie-talkie.
This complex has also become official place of walk of the brides and quinceañeras On one of his happiest days. In fact, today we have seen up to 4 couples taking their photos and arriving in a limousine. Nice tradition The rainbow fountain says goodbye
On this trip we have barely talked about politics, although the days have not lent themselves to it. Peru, the impression he gives us, is that he has not had luck with the successive rulers. Years ago, one "Alan García" left the country in very bad conditions. Today, at least until 2011 that there are elections, re-governed re-elected despite criticism. How did it come out again? Because his opponent was an indigenous native with military aspirations that would put Peru in a state of war with the neighbors with their ideals of recovery of the past Inca territory. I also wanted to annihilate homosexuals ... Anyway ... there is everyone around the world, but Fujimori was previously there, which even Peruvians themselves do not know if they had local nationality.
By the way, and our fellow keys will wonder ... Why have we not eaten any jungle animal following tradition? Well dear Juve and Ruth, the life of the jungle is very hard, hahahaha
Now we are going to prepare the suitcase, we intuit that we are going to spend a little weight with so much gift but ... there are ! GIFTS FOR ALL!. Family and friends, see you soon. A hug to all.
Isaac and Paula, from Lima (Peru)
EXPENSES OF THE DAY: 17 PEN (approx 4.67 EUROS) and 6.94 USD (approx 5.34 EUROS) and GIFTS: 43.30 PEN -approximately 11.90 EUROS-
