Lima’s biggest hotel for the night

Has no blankets

For four hours, from midnight to 4a.m., no domestic flights leave Lima Airport and the few planes that leave for international destinations hardly disturb the peace and quiet.  Everywhere along the corridors and in the waiting areas one sees passengers making themselves (more or less) comfortable on make-shifts beds.  The tiled floors can never compare to a mattress, but they do provide some horizontal sleeping comfort.  Even the bubbly, talkative types calm down and close their eyes.  One should sleep during the night and finally the smartphones are also turned off.  Curling up in a soft blanket definitely helps one to sleep well and dark surroundings are conducive to a good night’s sleep.  But (s)he who is really tired has to adapt to conditions at hand.  Thus we wish the many people who are holding out at the Lima hub a restful night.
