Sketch of Aunt Renie
I wake up with a pondering heavy rainfall and my new companion climbing all over me who I fell in love with on first sight when I arrived. I don’t want to leave her behind, so I tag her along with me.
By the time we went off, the rain had stopped. We traveled some streets and found ChocoMuseo, a chocolate museum. It was a jackpot. Me entering the world of chocolates again, hahaha, last time I faint in Brussels, Belgium for eating too many. I did resist more this time.
Later in the evening I decided to went for La Mar restaurant, where I had a nice meal with a great wine. I invaded the young couple who were on the next table. I think they were on their first date. But guess what, I spend three hours with them, talking, laughing, sharing stories, what a wonderful people.
Next I went for cultural show Folklore Nights where I’d chance of showing off, and this time to Peruvians with my newly learnt Russian Kalinka Dance. I can see their faces, it was a priceless moment. Folklore Nights was an interesting and colourful show. The energy was great and a lot of dance varieties from different regions of Peru. They didn’t allow me to get my cat in, but I had my way, hehehe. I did have problems in getting the cab though, but I met some nice kind couple, who arranged it for me.
The driver was nice, telling about his daughter who just started walking and how much he enjoys going to Marcahuasi for a family hiking. He drop me off and I was back to my comfy hotel room for one more night.
It’s 2am now as I’m writing, me and my cat are hungry. We will just eat some brownie and have a hot coco and will go to bed.
Another great and last adventurous day in Lima, Peru. Next destination Cusco :)
