Tevin left us in Santiago, Chile and the same day we met Keith’s brother and girlfriend in Lima, Peru. Kyle booked us an amazing apartment in the Barranco district that looked out over the water and had a huge living space. The first night we got in late like 2am and then slept in the next morning to make up for it.
After a lazy day we explored the Barranco area and found a cute restaurant for dinner. They had an amazing band playing with all sorts of instruments and it was funky jazz style. Our favorite instrument was the washboard, it was so impressive. Although I think Emily liked the tap dancing the best!
Every morning Kyle and I got up to run and I just loved getting outside to start my day. There was a perfect path going along the water for as long as you wanted to run. Great running town!
On Emily’s birthday Kyle treated us all to a fabulous amazonian dinner at La Maza. We ate and drank like kings and queens! We started with the snails, chicken rolls and jumbo shrimp then shared lomo saltado (sautéed meat and veggies) and a fish curry dish. We were stuffed and headed home to play cards. Keith and Kyle went to grab beers and came back with churros for dessert!! These churros got rated the best in Lima and wow they were melt in your mouth good.
On Sunday there was a market going on right next to our place that reminded me so much of Seattle. The market was full of samples and vendors who were making there own jellies, humus, tapanades, soups you name it.
