Our school had a Halloween party on Friday night. They served ‘pisco sours’ which is a local cocktail that I’m going to be spending a lot of time investigating…just to support the local economy, of course. We also had tiny baked potatoes and beef heart on skewers…sounds odd but it was tasty.
So, Lima doesn’t have a city bus system. What they do have is several minibus companies which careen recklessly through the streets, disregarding everyone’s safety, including the touts hanging out the doors incomprehensibly hollering out the bus’s destination. This seemed like a lot of fun so yesterday, my classmate, Matilda, and I took a couple of these minibuses out to see the nearby ruins of Pachecama. They weren’t much to see but it was a gorgeous day.Matilda
The hairless Peruvian dog. They live at the site and you can see what they think of the Incan gods that were worshipped here.
