Update hotel construction across the street



The hotel begins to rise up out of the ground. They are now on ground level or the 4th floor with four underground parking levels.




They are pouring cement every day now.




The house behind didn't sell out but now the house sits vacant.

My daughter, Jill Highland, will be coming to your mission this summer - she enters the MTC July 21st, but she already is fluent in Spanish, so I'm sure exactly when she'll be in Lima. She is so excited!! Any tips about clothing for the sisters? She heard that missionaries sit on the floor in homes a lot, so she shouldn't have light colored skirts. Any advice would eb very welcome!! My email address is annehighland@sbcglobal.net . We're excited to learn more about Lima!! -- Anne Highland, Bartlesville, OK

There are hundreds and hundreds of little vendors selling their wares from clothing, dolls, purses, jewelry etc. We didn't buy anything but got a good idea of some of the things that they have.

One of many highways in Lima. This is Avenida Arequipa that runs north and south. Maybe 9-10 blocks from our apartment. During rush hour this road will be packed.

On our P-day we went to Miraflores and ate at a fantastic restaurant just above the cliff. The tall building in the background is the Marriott hotel. The name of the restaurant was Mangos. It was buffet.
