Beginning of the trip

So after tying up all the last loose ends in Narrabri, I finally left for Sydney on Monday February 26th. I flew, with a slight delay, to Sydney and was able to get some last minute shopping done whilst in town. After some final farewell beers and walk on the Coogee-Bondi trail, I returned to the airport on Wednesday February 28th for my flight to Lima. The flight itself was pretty uneventful and due to the time difference I arrived in Lima that same day at 6PM.

All in all I spent a week in Lima, with my friend Charles, in a beautiful part of Miraflores - probably one of the nicest areas in Lima. We did go down to San Bartolomo for the weekend, which is a beach town just 30KM south of Lima. For the rest I just took Spanish classes during the day and enjoyed the town at night. The Spanish school, El Sol, is of very high quality and I enjoy the challenges of learning a language again... my time in Lima simply went too fast, but on Wednesday the 7th of March I flew to Medellin in Colombia. It is my plan to stay here for around 5 weeks and study Spanish full time...!
