... the day, as I had promised Noa I would walk with her to the nearby shopping mall, that was the plan. Ari came along, mostly interested in what the food court had to offer. This mall turned out to be one of the nicest I have seen anywhere with top end shopping, a theatre playing first run movies in English with Spanish subtitles, and all shoppers dressed to the nines, making us feel a bit out of place. We were once again struck by the fact that we were still ...

Our flight was delayed 8 hours which meant we would miss the once a day Lima to montevideo connection Avianca air rebooked us to an aa nonstop to uraguay so we get in at 930 am instead of 430 am and we got preferred seating with free wine and beer (like we will need that at 1130 ...
