Before the delayed bus, I had planned on skipping Lima altogether and getting straight onto another bus to Ica which was 4 hours away.
But because of the extended journey, I arrived in Lima around 7pm and didn't think it was wise to travel and arrive at a new place at 11 o'clock at night.
So I headed for a hostel in Lima to spend one night there before moving on. I didn't mind too much as was desperate for a shower and I wanted to sleep in a bed rather than on a bus!
The hostel was pretty quiet with only a hot Argentinian surfer staying there (!), but it was nice and gave me a few hours to explore a tiny bit of Lima, even if it was dark!
