19th August 2006 - Peru Trip - Day 11, July 14th - Lima

Now a few relaxing days back in Lima - no travel - ahhhh...

We went for a trip down to the black market (Polvos Azules). You can buy anything here straight out of the factories – complete soccer kits for any team, and country, DVD’s that haven’t been released, shoes, clothes... and the list goes on and on.

Now you would imagine that a black market would be that – a temporary market, with stalls etc outside. No – this is indoors and takes up two stories of a permanent building!

I got roped into playing football (soccer) in the local team that Steve plays in. Now, I haven’t played for at least 15 years I would guess, so went in goal so I wouldn’t get so knackered – yeah right!
