We used the rest of the morning to catch up on blogging and emails and then headed out to explore more of the city. Lima isn't a pretty city, and the weather doesn't help: The winter weather is this constant damp greyness that would probably get pretty old after a while. (The greyness of Belgium seems better to me, since at least there you have variation in the rain and clouds; here, it's just a uniform grey.)
It is an interesting city, though, and set dramatically on cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. And it has some pretty colonial buildings, too.

After touring the city, we had time and money to spend, so we found another nice restaurant -- this time a Swiss restaurant with delicious veal and desserts (and a piano player in the corner).
