The whole day I was busy working, going to the gym and also working on J & J tour ideas for Cusco and the rainforest. Yes, it was an extra work, but I love it! I love to be multitask, hahaha. I was going it and out my house the whole day, acting like a crazy but full of energy, hehehe. I like the busy days, yay!!!!

We were supposed to meet at 5:30pm, but I preferred to call them before. Good idea I made it so, since they were still in downtown. So we delayed the meeting. It was about 6:30pm when we finally met. This time I didn't park my car at the hotel parking place since last time, the guy in charge gave me such a hard time, pffff. I wanted to avoid any misunderstanding. Well, Jasper was ready waiting for me and his dad showed up a couple of mins later.
Jasper, Jos and me


Jasper's stomach was doing so much better, but still wasn't sure about eating anything heavy. Maybe going to a cafe, another option was pasta... well, I remembered a nice, bit small but sort of trendy restaurant in Barranco. They have really good food and Jos was also looking for a good wine, haha. I suggested this place, since they haven't been in Barranco and they told me they trusted my decisions, how nice! It was really foggy in Barranco. Wow! We were lucky and found a parking spot right in front of the restaurant, haha.

We sat down and started to check the menu. Jasper was still a bit insecure if eating here would be a good idea, until the found the carpaccio, hahaha.

He loves it! The waiter came and we ordered wine and beer to drink. For appetizers we got carpaccio, shrimps and tuna. Love the presentation of our dishes, really nice! And the main dishes were also really tasty, beef and tuna salad. So good!!! During the dinner we were talking about the tour they would start next morning and what they need and what to expect. Also we were talking about some business ideas, hahaha. Jos and me were thinking about what was missing on the restaurant. Music? Right lights? hahaha. They were on holidays, but couldn't stop thinking about business ;)

After a delicious dinner we left and headed back to Miraflores. While we were having dinner I got a call from Christian, but couldn't answer on time. So I called him back. He was with a friend.
at Tayta, of course, Christian, Yadi, Imogen, Jasper and Jos
Where? At Tayta, my bar! hahaha. I haven't been there in a while, but now I was going 2 nights one after another, haha. Christian was there with another friend, Imogen, an English girl he met while he was still traveling, but now he's a local, hahaha. So the 3 of  us joined them. The group was bigger now :)

I went to the bar to take a close look at the wines they were offering, haha. It's so good to be friend of the manager, since he gave me to taste the wines, hahaha. Finally we got our drinks and sat down just to relax. It was really foggy outside, brrrr. Unfortunately, Jos didn't stay long. He was feeling a bit tired and might have been thinking about the fact he had to wake up early next morning. Jasper would stay longer though, hahaha. We were just chilling out and chatting about our different travel experiences.
streets were quiet and foggy...
Imogen is such a nice girl. Really like her. And we both are addicted to the evil corn, hahaha. But, it was getting time to move. Christian and Imogen wanted to dance. I'd have loved to join them, but I was driving and it was a long day... Jasper should go back to the hotel and sleep, since he had a busy day starting early next morning. We all left together. Christian & Imogen went to Larcomar, while I left diving with Jasper. I'd leave him at his hotel.

It was time to say good-bye, actually see you next Monday. Next time we'll meet, he will have lots of things to tell about the adventure that was about starting next morning. And of course, party should be part of the agenda :)
