When I woke up, I saw a missing call in my cellphone. It just said: "Privado".
Around noon I drove to his hostel and picked him up. It was so nice seeing Lance again, but something was different. Oh yes! The beard! This time there was no beard. This also was the first time he saw me driving. Last time we mostly went out at night for party, so I didn't drive.
First of all: Inca Kola!!! He has already tried it during his first time in Peru - actually I think that was at my home, haha - and loves it.
The cebiche was so fresh and tasty. I asked him if he ever had snails before, since the cebiche had snails. He didn't have them, so this was something new for him! First new thing of the day: eating snails ;) Then he tried the tiradito, he liked it, but wanted to make a confession. He found the sauce at my home better. How sweet! ;) The dishes didn't look too big, but there was a lot of food.
"Well, what's the plan now, Yadi?" were Lance's words. I just said: "Well, Lance, eventually I had to drive back home and check my work, but you are welcome to join me". He has already been at home, so a familiar place, hehe. I couldn't believe Lance was hanging out in Miraflores last time, but didn't make it to the love park... Well, time to solve it. Traffic was crazy in Lima and Lance was pleased he didn't have to drive here, haha. I hope my driving skills didn't scare him :P
We started walking from the park where people do paragliding, mmm. Well, I guess we got another idea about what to do in Lima. But we'd do it my way. I mean, we'd contact my friend. I called him and he'd let us know when the wind was ok - besides giving us a better price ;) So we walked to the Love Park and there are some mosaics with poetry.
We arrived to my house and went straight to say hi to Gunther!!! I told Lance about Gunther's favorite wet food and he brought some for him. Thank you!!! During his 1st visit in Lima, I got a magnet, now Gunther got food, who's gonna get something next time? Because there will be a 3rd time, won't it? haha. Gunther recognized Lance and was so excited. Hey! Both Lance & Gunther had got new haircuts compared to when they met for first time, haha. So hilarious.
Well, I consider myself an Internet addict, but I wasn't alone! Lance is one of mine! While he was checking his email, TB and FB, I was contacting Sheree.
Balance of new things Lance did so far: eating snails and driving with Yadi in Lima.
Well, this meeting was a long day one, therefore it deserves 2 entries :)
