Our driver Migel met us at the airport.  Little did we know at the time this seemingly gentle Peruvian with the huge smile on his face while holding a sign with Angies name on it turned out to be an ex Indy 500 race car driver.  Not really but it would seem so if you were white knuckling it in his car from the airport to our hostal in Miraflores.  Holy fawk what a hair raising experience,speeding through the streets of Lima,narrowly grazing about 30 pedestrians,weaving in and out of traffic,averaging 100k an hour,no lights or working gauges on the dashboard,no seatbelts,not that they would help anyway, Oh ya,let the adventure begin!! Half hour later I handed Migel 45 soles for the near death experience but not before wiping the sweat off my hands!Angie seemed to handle the ride with no problem.  She probably drives that way back home when I'm not in the vehicle?   Time to chill.  The room is bare bones.  Four white walls,2 beds,1 mirror.  After a full day of travelling this is pure luxury.
