Where I stayed
We had arrived in Paracas really hungry after no breakfast nd had a really nice brunch... I had really nice Fish (t had pink fins) and Al had a seafood rice, a bit like paella with scallops on top... really nice. We washd it down with a beer (Al) and a pisco sour for me...! Because we had eaten such a big lunch, and the prices were slightly more along the coast, we had decidd to share a main dish and a salad for dinner...!
Everything is pretty limey here, and after lunch, my tummy was feeling a little sore (from the citrus I think), so I said to Al that I did not fancy a whole fish for dinner, some other seafood... or anything else really! - We had also decided on a ncie looking place where we`d had an afternoon drink and game of cards earlier, to have dinner at, as the food looked really good!
Having bumped into Nicola and Lauren again, we went for dinner... somehow we got pulled into the restaurant next door to the one we had decidd on, but it was full so we thought it would be okay...!- It all went wrong from her on...
Al ordered kingfish in lemon sauce (!)... exactly whatI didnt want, and I ordered an avocado salad... but instead of the normal nice big mixed salads with avocado in like I have been ordered for the past week, it arrived, and it was a lettuc leaf with a cut up avocado on top... that was all... we shared it... then the fish arrived... not only was it a fish in lemon sauce... it was raw! - everywhere else that sold "Ceviche", had it labelled as "ceviche"... apart from this place... so because of my sore tummy, I refused to eat any, so Al had it... Iwas pretty grumpy. I had a sre tummy, was hungry, and had no dinner... I had already decided to grab some crisps or biscuits from the little shop--- but everything started to close up, and by the time we got back (about 8), it had shut, so we went to bed, grumpy, hungry... and sad to have had our worse dinner yet!
Even the nights without dinner, and crisps or chocolate instead were better than this...! oh well, you live and learn...
