Following a wonderful flight on LAN Airlines from Los Angeles, we arrived at Lima airport shortly after midnight on December 31st. Immigration was quick and as we have only carry on, getting through customs was painless. Our taxi driver, Luis Carlos from the Hotel Runcu Miraflores was waiting patiently for us. The air was delightful and warm, still at 20C! By 1:30am we were at the hotel, checked in and settled in our room. It didn’t take us long before we were sound asleep.
At 7:30am Fero nudged me awake as I was in a deep, deep sleep. Slowly we got ready for the day, and went upstairs to the breakfast room for our included breakfast. We then decided to take a 4 hour city tour to acquaint ourselves with Lima. Within 1/2 hour we were on the bus and hearing all about Lima in both Spanish and English – this is great way to help keep my ear attuned to Spanish. Most people here speak English but they allow me to practice my Spanish which is nice.
Lima is a beautiful city, a mixture of old colonial and modern architecture and called the City of Kings. Our first stop is Huaca Pucllana which is a pyramid made of adobe and clay from 500AD. The name is Quechua, the second official language of Peru, and means ‘game’ which can be translated as a place for ritual games. Only a portion of it has been excavated.
From here we drive on towards Plaza San Martin, very, very slowly I might add. I am not sure if the traffic is worse because it is New Year’s Eve or if it always this bad. Lima has a population of around 9 million people and over 250,000 taxis!!!
Martin Scorsese's fascinating new film 'Casino' knows a lot about the Mafia's relationship with Las Vegas. It's based on a book by Nicholas Pileggi, who had full access to a man who once ran four casinos for the mob, and whose true story inspires the movie's plot. Like 'The Godfather,' it makes us feel like eavesdroppers in a secret place.The movie opens with a car bombing, and the figure of. This movie is was streaming free, with ads on Pluto TV, but as of January 2021, it’s not. This means you’ll have to do Never Say Never Again just like all the other films, find a spot to rent it. Here it is on Amazon for $3.99. Notably, virtually all the other “real” James Bond movies were streaming for free on Pluto, too.

The Hotel Gran Bolivar, a grand building built in the early 1900’s, is situated here and has a reputation for the best Pisco Sours in Lima. A Pisco Sour is the traditional drink of Peru – made of 3 parts Pisco (a brandy grown from grapes), 1 part lime, 1 part sugar and 1 whipped egg white and are delicious. Our guide Alfredo claims that having one invites you to have two, and if you have three you will be speaking Quechua!
We are now off to the Plaza de Armas or Plaza Mayor – the most important plaza which houses the Presidential Palace. Shortly after arriving we hear music and were treated to a marching band playing inside the gates of the Palace.
From here Alfredo takes us to El Convento de San Francisco and it’s Catacombs built by Franciscan monks. Getting hungry and hot, it is time for us to reboard the bus and head for lunch.
We opted to get off at the Alfresco Restaurant, famous for its ceviche and seafood. We were not disappointed! We tried our first Pisco Sour, Ceviche and 2 other appetizers that were delicious!
Jet lag getting the best of us, we headed back to the hotel, walked along the beach and then had a nice long nap. We awoke just in time to participate in the New Year’s festivities. We had a first class seat from our window watching the incredible fireworks displays coming from every direction. And they don’t wait for midnight, the noise and displays started in full force around 10:30pm. It was definitely something to watch as we sipped our favourite Argentinian wine.
What a great way to ring in 2015!

Looking for James Bond movies streaming? They’ve moved again! The next big James Bond film, No Time To Die has been delayed AGAIN until October 8, 2021. Will we ever see him again? So, with Daniel Craig’s swan song as 007 a long way off, — and the future of new streaming Bond movies in flux — it’s never a bad time to binge Bond if you can find him! Here’s your guide to where every James Bond movie is streaming online right now, as of January 2021.
We all know that although James Bond has a license to kill, his best super-power is actually the ability to tell terrible dad jokes. Hopefully, if we ever get to see Daniel Craig’s forthcoming final James Bond movie — No Time To Die — we’ll get a whole new clip full of bad puns we can load-up and fire off. In the meantime, 007 movies have a tendency to hop from streaming platform to streaming platform, kind of like the way Bond jumped over those rooftops in Spectre.
You may have read all the Bonds were streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime or Netflix, but the truth is, where the Bond movies are streaming changes all the time. So, where is all of Bond streaming right now? Here’s the update as of January 2021! (Hint: Everything is different!)
Classic Bond: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, and Timothy Dalton
As of January 2021, all the pre-1995 “the classic” James Bond movies have left both Amazon Prime and Hulu. These are all now available to rent on Prime and other outlets at $3.99 a pop. To be clear right now zero classic Bonds are streaming “for free.”
Classic Bonds For Rent on Amazon Prime (and YouTube and iTunes, Amazon links follow)
Daniel Craig Bond Movies
As of right now, the Daniel Craig movies are available to rent on streaming in several places, and specifically Amazon Prime, iTunes, and YouTube. As of January 2021, the only Daniel Craig Bonds that are streaming “for free” or the first two, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Here’s how that shakes out.
- Casino Royale on Netflix.
- Quantum of Solace is still on Netflix.
Pierce Brosnan Bonds
What about Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan? At the moment, none of the Pierce Brosnan Bonds are streaming “for free,” anywhere. Here’s where you can rent those movies or watch them with a cable “add on.”
Like the pre-1995 Bonds, you can rent the Brosnan films from YouTube and iTunes, too. But, unlike the “classic” Bonds, the Brosnan films have a tendency to jump back to Netflix from time to time. So, maybe expect that in February 2021?
Never Say Never Again + Free Bond?
In 1983, Sean Connery returned to play a semi-retired James Bond in a movie called Never Say Never Again. This movie is not considered an “official” James Bond movie and only existed through a legal loophole. Basically, the guy who co-wrote Thunderball, Kevin McClory, was able to retain partial rights to Bond, and thus, Never Say Never Again is a weird Thunderball remake, only this time Bond is older, and Kim Basinger is also around. This movie is was streaming free, with ads on Pluto TV, but as of January 2021, it’s not. This means you’ll have to do Never Say Never Again just like all the other films, find a spot to rent it. For now. Here it is on Amazon for $3.99.
Notably, virtually all the other “real” James Bond movies were streaming for free on Pluto, too. (Excluding any of the Daniel Craig movies. But now, the 007 Pluto channel has seemingly been pulled.
We’re gonna leave this link here though, just in case it suddenly gets reactivated in February 2021. Here’s where that link used to live, right here.
