This morning I have to go to the school for my lesson. Although it isnâ€™t very far from the house, itâ€™s up a very steep hill so A and I catch a taxi NS2, AUD0.73. They have run out of rooms for teaching so Fanny teaches me in her bedroom. She has very young twin boys, one is downstairs, awake, the other is in the bedroom, asleep in a cot. Fanny is married to the chief administrator/manager of FairPlay. My grammar lessons arenâ€™t really about learning grammar, but more about putting it into practice.
Basically I spend the time talking and listeningâ€¦and being corrected. At 12 oâ€™clock Allison and I catch a taxi back to the house. We have a 3 course dinner, but three savoury meals, no desert.
Nele and I walk back to the Plaza de Armas and I find a restaurant that has wifi. Will return there for dinner. Then we find a tourist agency. I ask about getting to Poroy tomorrow morning. For USD20 I arrange to be picked up outside the house and driven to Poroy to catch the train. Nele and I return to the restaurant and she has a coffee and chicken dinner and hurries off as she has another lesson. I stay and do the blog and start to organise accommodation in Lima. The food is nice and the staff excellent, complimenting me on my Spanishâ€¦oh well, I like to believe them. The restaurant is Tupanchis on Plazoleta Espinar. No smoking. Theyâ€™re not cheap but I would recommend them. NS128, AUD50. This included dinner for both Nele and me.
I get back to the house around 9 pm.
