This is a comprehensive trip report (read long) as I also share these with a frequent flier community that I belong to. So grab a cocktail, fasten those seat belts, and join me as we jet over 10,000 miles on LAN. I was able to utilize the American Express International Airline Program (IAP) once again for this return to South America.
My trip to Lima was better than I could have expected. I mean, I knew it was going to be a great trip but was so interested to see how far the City has come since the horrible terrorist attacks during the 1980’s which severely damaged the reputation of Lima. Well, I am happy to report that the Lima of today is a rich and vibrant city that has most deservedly captured the title of culinary capital of the Americas. Lima is very much a city of stark contrasts particularly rich and poor but one this that is unifying is the warm welcome and sense of pride that its inhabitants have.
I have not been posting as frequently as normal because as many of you know I am on the road in Lima, Peru.
Sadly my journey to Lima is coming to an end and I have had a truly fabulous time here. I was a bit apprehensive in the food allergy department at first but found this culinary capital of the Americas to be most welcoming to this food allergic diner.
