Cathedral in Cuzco Peru

We flew into Lima in October 2000 to start our short tour of Peru, Equador and the Galapagos. 

After a very short night in the most lavish hotel I had, at the time, ever stayed in - the bathroom was marble, with three showers and bigger than my bedroom - we were served breakfast in our room and whisked off to the airport for our onward flight to Cuzco. In sharp contracts to the hotel, the minibus was in a terrible state with exhaust fumes coming up into the cab through cracks in the floor. Fortunately it was a short journey and we could breath the outside air through the open window.
