This is the stunning stained glass dome in the lobby of the historic Gran Hotel Blolivar in Lima, Peru. Built in 1924 in the Spanish Baroque style on Plaza San Martin, it attracted Hollywood stars such as John Wayne and Orson Wells in the 1940s and 50s.
Next week we’ll ascend to the two-mile-high city of Cusco where we acclimated for visiting Machu Picchu; then we’ll plunge to sea-level Lima as we wrap up our incredible tour of Peru.
Meanwhile, if you’re around this weekend, we’ll complete our re-visit to Sri Lanka – one of our all-time favorite places. It was such a wonderful surprise!
Have a great weekend,
