the happy gang!!! Romain, Stacey, Yadi, Pavel, Dan, Susan, Jos, Mark, Rene Francisco, Jim & Lili
After a couple of piscos, hehe, we were ready to go to the karaoke and sing. Let the rest of the gang enjoy our beautiful voices, haha.
Lili had arranged a box in a karaoke in Miraflores, just in front of the park, walking distance. Some took a cab and other just walked there. When we arrived I was suprised I saw somebody alone in the box... when I got closer (I wasn't wearing my glasses), I recognized her. She's another TB! A local, one: Susan, but it was the 1st time I saw her in person. She could join us! The more the merrier :)

There were 3-4 books full with songs in different languages, mmm. Choosing would be a difficult decision, mmm. Mark went first, he already knew what to sing.
I was gonna ... until I got high...
We started ordering drinks too. Most of the gang got beers, Francisco started with the Pisco, since he didn't have anyone at the Pisco Place but Pavel & I were the only ones having Cokes. Why? well, I had to wake up early the next morning, haha.

Dan started to take a close look at the book and chose different songs. Asked me which song I liked and wrote it down, OMG!!! Would I sing a Madonna's song? We all were having fun, but still a bit shy until... Dan might look quiet and a bit shy, but then we saw some lyrics at the tv and the show started. "Because I got high" was the perfect choice. I didn't know Dan was such a great performer, he didn't just sing, he was rapping, clapping, haha. Everyone stood up and started to shout and dance, haha. This was the key song of the night, after that everyone wanted to sing, haha.
Life is a mystery...


What about Marian? well, he couldn't sing, but he was taking pics and making videos. I hope I can watch them, haha. Nelly & Francisco sang a Lating song as a duet. Very, very nice. Jos said he wouldn't sing, well he said that the day before and now he was singing haha, encouraged by Mark, haha.

I was just chatting and laughing when I saw they were playing "Like a Prayer" OMG! Dan gave me the mic and said: Sing! but I wanted to do it alone so I looked at Stacey and she wasn't sure, but when the song started, we became the Madonna's duet, haha. And everytime we listened to Madonna during the whole weekend, we became the duet again ;) This girl is awesome!!!!

Outside they were playing some salsa, so Nelly & Francisco went to the dance floor. Francisco & I also danced in the box, haha.
no time for loosers...
He dances very well. He proved to be: Mr. Puelto Lico!!!! So sorry, the box wasn't bigger, but it was good, since we all were close and could be more fun, haha. Drinks kept on coming and coming. James was a bit quiet at the disco place and didn't sing much this time, but this guy knew how to drink pisco sours, haha.

Now, Miraflores official song: "We are the Champions!" and the performers were the 2 Miraflorinos: Jim & Romain. These guys are just awesome! They might be foreigners, because they were born in other countries, but they feel theirselves more Peruvians than a lot of people. I say it Romain, it took me a long but: you are Peruvian!!!! Everyone stood up and sang the song, was super!

ok, it was almost midnight and I talked to the cab who was picking Shawn from the airport.
Shawn just arrived!!!
The last TB of the night was already in Lima. He'd stay in an appartment a couple of blocks away and I had the keys, haha. So Romain joined me there and we met Shawn. It was so good to see him, big hug!!!!! Romain couldn't stay longer and left, but I went back to the karaoke with Romain.

I warned Shawn he would have to sing, haha. Jim was waiting for Shawn the whole night and when they finally met, it was like meeting an old friend. He were in touch before Jim came to Lima. Shawn even sent Jim something for me, so sweet!!!! Shawn had a hard weekend, but it didn't stop him ordering a pisco and start catching up with the gang, haha.

Suddenly, a revelation: a duet in Japanese... they performers: Lili and Martin.
yeah!
Lili has an amazing voice, perfect!!! She could have become a singer, seriously. Everyone was just listening carefully. I didn't understand anything, but it sounded so sweet. Dan was making up some lyrics haha.

Around 1am the girl came and let us know they had to close. One more, one more... we stayed there until 2am, when they were closing the doors, haha. Anyway we should leave and most of us were tired. Time for a beer? I'd love to, but had to accept I needed to sleep, haha. We said good bye and agreed to meet the next morning at 10 am. Hopefully we'll make it, hehe.

without voice and a bit tired but so so happy, I went back home...
