Along the coast was love park which had a BIG statue in the middle of 2 people passionately kissing. This seemed to inspire lots of couples to do the same thing. This made sarah feel very awkward.
There was a little hut selling Peruvian Cornish pasties and I got my first chance to practise my Spanish!
Next stop a shopping centre built into the side of the cliff which seemed to be falling away around it. The shopping centre could of been anywhere in the world with lots of chain restaurants, shops and a bowling alley. We didn't hang around long and headed off towards the centre of town, stopping on route for sandwiches, churros and tabacco - all from the best shops in miraflores (apparently)
We then headed to a local food market which sold loads of different types of fruit, then we rounded a corner to the meat section- not sure if fridges have been invented here yet as all kinds of parts of animals were just laid out on the counters
Back at the hostel we all sat down and had some beers. Billy then offered to make us a BBQ with ox heart, and vegetables for the people who didn't want it. We were chatting with people at the table about different words people use in the uk and america which mean the same, the topic of stag and hen parties came up, in canada its stag and stagette and usa is bachelor and bachelorette, and the swiss guys told us that there word for stag means the burying of the young boys life!! Our group grew over the evening 2 more Americans another Brit and an Ozzie joined us and we realised we had definitely made the right choice picking this hostel. Sarah was even beginning to look calm again rather than a rabbit caught in the headlights!
After this we headed to a local night club, which was very similar to a small night club back home except everyone was salsaing all over the dance floor- the girls especially were very enthusiastic with their moves After not sleeping for about two days, walking all over Lima and salsaing the night away we were very happy to find the beds in our room and pass out.
Bye for now
Tai and Sarah
