Day 36: Lima (72 kms)
This was neither a day off in the sense that we stayed off the bikes or in that we rested. The turnaround in Lima was always bound to be tight. I made a "to do" list that would have taken me two days in Ottawa to complete. And Peter needed to get his bike from storage and return it to travel ready status. In the event we spent the morning getting organized and the afternoon running around. By the time we liberated Peter's bike it was late afternoon. By the time we realized the battery on his bike was dead, it was early evening. By the time we replace the battery with a platoon of helpful men from the neighborhood, night had fallen. We pushed back departure until the following afternoon. I still managed to meet a friend for dinner and indulged in more excellent seafood.
