My four-day Lima itinerary

Contrary to popular assumption, I'm not a tourist. I am a traveler. I have a routine, just like you, only in a variety of locations:

Wednesday: Worked in the early morning (I arrived Tuesday 11pm) then went to the gym in Lacromar shopping center overlooking the ocean. Visited the Agua Dulce beach in the afternoon. In the evening, went to the grocery store to buy ingredients for my morning smoothie and ate at a local restaurant. I walked 13,00 steps that day.

Thursday: Morning gym then I walked through the Miraflores neighborhood to eat at a friend-recommended lunch spot. Worked until about 4:30pm and I visited Torre Cruz del Morro Solar lookout point, then walked to Barranco Municipal Park and ate dinner at La Cuadra de Salvador steakhouse.

Friday: Worked in the morning and afternoon at coffee shops and ate lunch at B Restaurant. Went to the gym in the late afternoon. In evening, met up with a buddy from Medellin and his friend for dinner.

Saturday: Got a beard trim before my 11am flight to Iquitos for my 3-night luxury Amazon River Cruise.
