at the Cafe, without any idea what's gonna happen later - party time!!!
It was Friday evening and I was staying quiet at home, a bit cold and without plans. But everything was about to change. It was around 7pm when I got a call from Jim. He was still fighting against the cell phones here ;) Anyway, he was with some friends at a cafe and were thinking about going to Barranco
, since one of them wanted to know the area. Well, I should say that this person is another traveler. She's from Latvia! The 1st person I knew from that country ;) Jim asked me if I'd like to join them to Barranco. Sure! But I was also welcome to join them and hang out for a while until it was time to go.
Around 8pm I met them at a cafe in Miraflores. We had a beer and were just chatting and hanging out.
Lucho is serious at the supermarket. He was doing the math haha
Yeba (?) was telling us about her 5 months travel through America. She started in Mexico and right now is in Peru - everything by bus excepting a sailing boat! Time to plan our next move, haha. We'd go to Barranco, but it was too early for that. Usually we start going out around 11pm in Lima. So, we decided to do the "previos" first at Jim's friend's place. Ok, we call the previos to: having some drinks and get in the mood before going out for party. We had a plan and needed some stuff from the supermarket. Just alcohol supplies, hehe. We weren't hungry, but having some cheese and cabanossi sounded so good. So we got some too and I wanted them to try a Peruvian cheese. ;)
Finally we got at Francisco's appartment. He wasn't there, he was at the university - or so we thought.
.. While people were getting changed, I started fixing the appetizer. Jim was playing some music when suddenly... Francisco appeared!!! He has been sleeping. OMG!!! He felt lazy and cold and decided not to go to school :P Lucho arrived with the idea of playing "Quispe". Quispe is a dice game, the whole purpose is: to screw the other and get drunk! I have to be honest, I have never played that. So, the game started... we were playing and having so much fun. Well, Yeba wasn't having that much fun... poor girl she had to drink 3 shots uffff. I made a big mistake, but was so lucky I didn't have to drink. To make the long story short, poor Yeba ended drinking for me...
It was almost midnight and we decided to leave and go to Barranco. Francisco had classes the next day early and had to read for a test!!!! Lucho, Yeba, Jim & I left Francisco and took a cab to Barranco! We were thinking about going to a pub, but it was already late and the place was packed.
our last drink before the promotion was over ...
So we ended in a small pub/disco at the Boulevard, well they had a promotion: all you can drink until 2am! haha. Ok, time to dance, haha. Lucho was trying to teach Yeba to dance and I was doing the same with Jim, but he already knows how to dance ;)
It was so much fun. We had a blast and I'm sure Jim did too, although he was waiting for more salsa. Yeba wasn't feeling so well, so time to leave. mmm, it wasn't even 2am, mmm, the promotion was still valid, mmm. Jim and I decided to stay and keep on having fun :P
Finally we left about 4am. We went to Francisco's first. It was amazing he was still awake and cooking!!! We were just chatting for a while and it was time for me to leave too. I remember the birds were singing when I arrived home...
