A Simple Bed

Sometimes all you need is a simple bed. And wifi. After 2 days of 8h+ long-haul flights, Hostal Buena Vista had everything I needed on May 9th, for the reasonable price of $35 a night.

My taxi ride was happily uneventful. I think it’s rare for something to happen to you in Lima taxis, but it’s not unheard of to be robbed (or for the taxi to drive off with your bag in the trunk). Great advice from Ben at Streets of Lima about taking taxis in Lima. I was lazy and tired, so just bargained to 30 Soles on the price from the airport, but that’s a lot better than the $30 (almost 90 Soles)  the “official” taxis were asking for.

Finally, I’ve arrived in South America!

  1. You can’t beat $35! Great find!
    .-= B´s last blog ..Wrigley Field =-.

  2. Yeah, it really hit the spot. Hostal Buena Vista in Cusco (I can now say) is also really great. Perfect location, view, and even a bit cheaper, about $25 I think.
