Now in Pisco. List of sites worth visiting:-CathedralMiraflores Pizza Street – for a drinkInca Market The rest is humdrum touristy bullshit replicated, repeated and re-formatted for capitals throughout the world.Not very interesting.Not very engaging.We feel that we have to do it, but I won´t bore you with the details. Things to look out for in […]
Have spent morning familiarising myself with the area, nothing serious, shops ´n shit had to find a chemist.Will check LP later.Getting used to the cockroaches in my room.Peruvians seem friendly enough.May learn a little Spanish to oil the wheels of south American/British social integration efforts.
Taxi drivers rob my walkman & try and charge me $100 to ship me from airport.We all see this is a good laugh, as I fail to realise the Peruvian taxi driver has rooted my bags while I was at the cash machine.
Seems I’m not the only celebrity visiting Lima.I´ve got this brief video, Jorge Pardo one of Peru´s top singers won 2 ‘Gaviotas de Plata’ for best south American singer in Santiago de Chile and Peru.He was pulling in at the same time I was.I think this catches the moment perfectly.
American Airlines fucked it up. We ended up being 40 minutes late to taxi and missing our slot.Have been travelling since 7pm Tuesday, it is now 4.30am Thursday.
Can´t say I´ve ever been on a Jumbo Jet before.The plane is wider and there are more faces to look at when you walk up and down.Didn´t partake in BA foodstuffs.Stewardess gave me 2 cans of Coke instead of 1. Perhaps I am starting to look as zoned as I feel.
Breakfast was bacon baguete and cappachino.Came to 7.50.Headed to gate 20 on advice of tannoy.Reached 20, tannoy was wrong, directed to gate 36.Ran to gate 36.Got on plane.Can’t always believe what you hear, especially after no hours sleep.
Not bothered, I approached the BA ticket desk explained in a loud voice how I had been given the wrong instructions and blah blah, missed , queue blah…BA being BA this was not problematic, new tickets we issued without establishment of blame/consultations/rebuffals/attempts to make you buy more tickets etc.All very civilized ´n that. Like Yorkshire […]
Not having slept much, I was handled by the airport staff rather than the other way round.Consulting staffer, I was directed to queue and stood with rucksack, along with other business types.Stood for a while. 45 minutes or so @ bag drop and desk established that plane had left without me as well as this […]
Got the train down to Heathrow.Spent the night @ terminal 2 coutesy of BAA.Didn´t fancy 120GBP for a civilized alternative.Pitched under stairwell.
