Since his first time in Lima (almost 5 weeks ago), Sach let me know he wanted to come back to my house and have dinner with me and my family, but this time he wanted to cook for us :) I was so glad and really appreciated that. This kind of gesture is not so usual by us - I mean in Lima. Wow! I have to say, that my parents weren't so glad the first time I introduced them to my TB. But after this gesture they were so grateful, specially my mom!
But it wasn't the only thing. Sach contacted a friend in London and his friend sent by post all the spices. I came back from work one day and found a small box, when I opened it... the spices were there!!!
Sach arrived to Lima on Sunday and we agreed to meet on Monday after work.
We started cooking around 6:30pm. It was so much fun. We both like to cook, but it was the first time cooking 3 dishes at same time and for 5 people, hahaha. Usually we just cook 1 dish at time and at the most for 3 people. So it was an adventure, a fun one. We had a blast cooking and listening to music - this time not 80's music hahaha. The food was Indian. I have to say that it was the first time for me and my family having real Indian food. And I couldn't have asked for a better way to taste it, that home made by a friend :)
For entree we had: Chicken Jalfrezi and Jeera Chicken.
My mom had arrived from Cusco just a couple of days ago and wanted also to share some traditional food with us. So she brought some tamales - the tamales in Cusco are a bit different, don't have much fat and taste a bit sweet - for dessert.
We asked for a taxi in order to drive Sach to the airport. So we had some free time before it was time to leave. Sach checked the news about his flight and further bookings. In the meanwhile, Gunther was running like crazy around the whole house, hahaha.
The taxi came and it was time to say good bye... I don't know if it was true or just a joke, but Sach said something about coming back in 2 years. I hope so - I'm crossing my fingers. Otherwise my mom was saying she'd go to London, hahaha.
This experience was so great! I really appreciated Sach shared his culture with us and decided to spend his last hours in Lima with my family. This is priceless! I hope Sach had such a wonderful time as we did. He will always be welcome in Lima. A family will be waiting for him. And if he can't come in 2 years, one of us will be knocking at his door in Lodon :)
