Next Morning we traveled by Bus back to the ship from Lima to General San Martin port. Before we left Lima, I wanted to mention that a very special person was due to arrive in Lima in two days: The Pope!
Luckily, we were gone by the time he showed up. I believe that the city’s security would go up about 1000%. As we rode from Lima to the port where the ship waited for us, we saw quite a few preparations for the Pope’s visit… new landscaping spelling out his name, setting up grandstands, etc.
Our trip to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu were amazing, but it was really nice to get back “home”, the Prinsendam!
