Where I stayed
I spent the night in a small, cosy hostel called Pacific Trade-winds and went out for a drink and a dance at a run down blues bar with the people form the hostel. The band were in their 60s and 70s but still knocked out some great tunes with a lot of energy. We stayed up pretty late then had to wake up not long after to catch the Champions League final. Not bothered who won, I stuck to winding up the supporters of the team that was at that point losing the match. Makes it much more interesting.
After the game I caught the train out to see the Varda family. It was fantastic to see them again, my cousins were now all grown up and with their fantastic new house came a very comfy couch, fridge full of food and a gigantic by humongous inch TV screen to make up for what luxuries I have missed over the last year and a half. My Aunty Kathryn made sure I was never without a cup of tea and lovely food, and for the few days I was there I enjoyed walking the dog, watching scrubs, catching up on sleep and telling them all about my travels. On the day of my flight to South America we went out to the coast for Fish and Chips, then back to the house to indulge on scones with cream and jam several cups of tea all in front of an old repeat of Lovejoy. A perfect English Sunday afternoon in America.
I said farewell and Kathryn sent me off to Peru armed with a bag of PG Tips and a box of Walker´s Shortbread.
