Some sightseeing in Miraflores was part of the Pre Meet Up. 4 boys (Martin, Pavel, Dan & Marian) have already been in Lima and didn't want to do the sightseeing again, besides they were leaving early Saturday and needed to buy some souvenirs. So the group got smaller, just 8 people. At 4:30pm we met in front of the Church - again, haha. We took 2 cabs and drove to Huaca Pucllana, a Pre Inca Pyramid made of adobe. Unfortunately it was closed. Grrrr, I should have checked the hours, grrr. We couldn't walk around the whole pyramid, but at least were able to go to the front and take some pics. I tried to explain the group a bit of the Pre Inca Civilization.

Ok, we were ready here, so we kept on going. This time to the Love Park - Parque del Amor, where the 4 boys would join us. We started taking pics. Group pics, girls' pics, boys' pics, couples' pics, haha. Oh! and there was a boy who was following us saying: "No entiendo" (I don't understand). I thought it was because we were talking in English. Francisco talked to him in Spanish, but he kept saying the same. So Martin talked to him in Slovak: "Now, you can say you don't understand, haha" Don't remember how many, but we took tons of pics, haha. We were ready to keep on moving, but our next stop: The Pisco Place wouldn't open until a bit later...

So we decided to walk around and went to another park. It was windy and getting a bit chilly, but it didn't stop us to take more and more pics, haha.

It was getting late and the Pisco Place was just 5 blocks away, so I suggested to walk there. This place is very popular and is always crowded. Personally they have the best Flavoured Pisco Sours, they mix the Pisco with different fruits, yummy!!!! I posted in the Forum that Huaringas would be our stop at 8 o'clock, since they open at this time. We arrived 20 min earlier, but I decided to ask if we could go inside and we did it, haha.

There were some tables in the 2nd floor waiting for us, yeah!!! There were 3 other local TB's in their way. They would arrive any minute, but we were thirsty, so we started ordering the piscos, haha, plus something to eat. Dan wanted to drink something non alcoholic for now, haha. I suggested a juice and he agreed, then he closed the menu and asked me to order for him: "I trust you!" So sweet!!! And Pavel did the same, he asked me which Pisco I'm gonna take and he chose the same one, haha.
just 6 more pics, haha
One of the tables got a Peruvian appetizer with anticuchos (a stick with pieces of cow's heart, very tasty!) potatoes and corn. Ok, at this point I started feeling like a mom, haha. I ended up fixing the plates, haha. Well, I loved it! Just seeing all the people smiling and having fun, was the best reward! By the way, they loved the anticuchos!

Lili arrived, yeah! Hi dear!!! She told me she could barely wake up that morning, haha. So better not to drink tonight, but she took a sit and orderes her Pisco ;) People kept on trying the different flavors of pisco sours. We were doing research, haha, trying to find the best one. Well, for me the best one was the first I tried: "Granadilla with grapes".

I took a look at the entrance and recognized this short guy: Romain! haha, How couldn't I recognize my giant? haha, so glad he could join us.
with Rom, here is where we first met and it was through a TB :)
He told me he would n't be able to stay until too late, since he had to work the next morning. Well, we'll see, hehe. James was a bit quiet, so I asked Romain to make him talk and have fun and he succeeded. Thanks Rom! Ok, so far I had 2 piscos... My glass was empty again, haha. Pavel looked that and finished his pisco too. It was time to go for the 3rd haha.

While we were waiting for the 3rd one, Jim "The Hunter" arrived. I consider him as a local TB, since he has been living in Lima for a couple of months and no idea when he'd live town, yeah!!! Jim has already met part of the gang, so it was easy to join the group, plus he's so outgoing and fun. After some piscos I checked the clock. It was still early 10:30pm, but we had another activity for the end of the night, so better ask for the bill and start moving.
give me my pisco, haha. Pavel had tumbo and I had Grape & Lima
Before leaving I looked for the manager, just to say hi. Now he knows me, haha. Always good having contacts and making relations, haha.

Ok, after our piscos we were ready to sing...
