Photographer's Note

I thought I'd head South to Peru today :)

We spent 3 days in Lima, and to be honest we didn't get very many photographs - perhaps we were too tired from our 5 day hike in the mountains and jungle to Machu Picchu...who knows. We left the city of Lima without very many good photos, and for the first time in my life I actually didn't even care!

We wanted out of Lima and wanted to start in a new city with new scenery. Of course, Easter Island was the next destination, so perhaps thats why I wanted out of Lima so desperately! And the fact we had terrible weather didn't help either, no sun for 3 days, lots of white overcast dreary days - exactly what you see in this photo.

This San Francisco Church in Lima seemingly is impossible to photograph without the birds!!! No matter where I look online the birds are always there, i wonder why??

As for the title of the photo "No Groups Please"...well, there's an easy explanation for that. I very rarely if EVER, purchase a tourist group outing. But I did here, and i regret it. It brought back all the reasons why I decided NOT to do so on every other trip I go on - my TIME.

My time is priceless to me, and when you go on these tours they want to rush rush rush rush you through like herding Cattle until the next group comes through.

I wanted to take more photos, I was actually trying to compose the photo you see here and before I knew it the group leader was shouting at me to get back on the bus.

I felt like telling her to shut up and go on without me! lol

Oh well, live and learn right!
So this photo isn't my best, not even close, but i thought I'd post it anyways as I don't have many posted on TE from Lima or Peru. I'll try to find more.

Enjoy your day.
thanks for looking
