crazy, Marlboro made in Switzerland, with Arabic inscription and sold in Peru!!!
This karaoke experience would be the 3rd in Lima. First was during the Lima Meet Up, second was when Malvin (a TB who ended up staying in Lima for almost 2 months) organized the called "Lima Idols Meet - Up" and this time, Cinthia (a local TB) organized "Lima Idols Meet - Up II". It doesn't matter if you sing good or not, as long as you are having fun with friends (and usually drinks will be helpful too), you will have a blast. And this wasn't the exception.

The attendants include local and international TB's. Most of them met in Miraflores in order to drive together to the karaoke in San Borja (another area of the city).
Christian, Tone & Yadi
I was hanging out with Tone & Christian, so we went straight to the karaoke. We arrived before the rest of the gang, waited for them outside, but decided to go inside. While we were waiting we decided to order something to drink, mmm. Getting a cocktail... or better a bottle of rum and coke, there you go! We were just chilling out while we checked the big book of songs. You could find almost any song there, pffff. Tone & Christian agreed to sing, but not alone. They'd do it as a duet, hahaha. The Scandinavian duet! Skal! hahaha.

Around 11pm the rest of the gang arrived. This would be a large group. We had to squeeze in order to fit in the table, but we succeeded, haha. The international table included people from USA, England, Norway, Denmark and of course Peru. Cinthia brought 2 presents for the winners of the Karaoke contest, hahaha.
Arriba Peru!!!!
We were introducing ourselves to each other, when a guy said: "Yadi? It's me, Matt!" He moved to Lima around 1 month ago and we have been in touch through TB, but couldn't ever meet until last night! hahaha.

A couple of minutes later Raul arrived. He's a local TB. I haven't seen him in a looong time. It was so nice meeting him again and he brought a friend and his cousin, who's a sweet girl! We all were chilling out, talking and changing travel adventures through Peru and the rest of the world. At the beginning people were a bit shy, about singing, but after a couple of drinks - or maybe more - and finding their favorite songs, everyone was ready and wanting to sing.

Christian was so happy with the Peruvian flag, Jenny gave to him. And get even happier when I wrote on it his favorite quote "Arriba Peru!" hahaha.

Don't need to say, that many pics followed, hahaha.

Then another TB arrived, Nelly! She wasn't sure, she'd be able to do it, but she did it! Now the group was complete. We were having a blast, but Jenny and Julio had to leave early. They live far away... We said good bye, but kept the party going on, hehe.

It was a big happy group. Everyone was having a great time, singing, cheering, clapping, hahaha. After listening to not so good singers in the other tables, we knew we would rock the place, hahaha. Some of the guys would leave Lima the next day and others would stay longer in town. Hopefully we'd get together again this time for some dancing!

Comments about the singing contest, mmm, what happens in Lima... hahaha
