This week we traveled to the capital city of Peru – Lima. Traveling to Lima is an expensive trip for us and Lima is a big, big city so we try to only go when we have to. A plus of being in the big city is the taste of the U.S. that we get at all the American restaurants there, as well, we like to walk around the malls. Those are about the only “pluses” for us. The downside is lots of traffic, long and expensive taxi rides, and no sunshine (at least this time of year). This was a must trip for us because we had to finish up paperwork for our resident visas. We praise the Lord we were able to get our residency cards with no problems! We had to wait in 1 line for over 2 hours. After that we waited in another line to get our pictures taken for at least 30 minutes and then we waited in line another 2 hours to get the cards. All the waiting did not make for a fun day but the result was worth the wait. Having our resident visas again will enable us to do things in the country that you can’t do with just a U.S. passport like: open a bank account, have a monthly cellphone plan, get a Peruvian driver’s license, etc. We thank the Lord for keeping us safe in Lima and getting us back to Cusco safely!
