... the 'spit bucket holder for a journeyman boxer' one. Most guides favour a polite approach when dealing with client issues, not Pablo. His go to response involved a smooth combination of aggression and conflict, admittedly an approach that was befitting of his Brooklyn gangster accent. Surprisingly, he took a more mellow approach during the last 20mins of the trip, unsurprisingly this culminated in him asking for tips. A good tip for Pablo would have been to develop his ...

... Hop as the buses are too big to manoeuvre the narrow streets of the city centre. Will (the owner and founder of Peru hop) jumps aboard, greets us all and gives us the plan.

Scary doesn't even describe it. And the youngest one, Alejandra, is new to the home....and she loves to escape. And she is so darn cute!
