His flight arrived at 11:25am from Quito. It was almost 12:30 and I was wondering where was he.
For his last lunch in Lima we'd have cebiche (fish & seafood). But where to go now? Well, I thought about a restaurant I used to go while I was working for this company a couple of years ago. They are in other area of the city. Well, we had time. We found a very convenient parking spot. Once inside we ordered the cebiche & jalea and to drink: Inca Kola! John liked it, but didn't know when he'd be able to try it again, so better have much as possible while he was still in town, hahaha.
Most of the talking was about his experiences in Peru and Galapagos. Wow! There were just 3-4 weeks, but he knew so many places. So many adventures, including almost being pickpocked twice in Quito, pfff. Most of his group got food poisoned at some point. He was the only one who never got sick, hahaha. And since he spent a couple of days more than the rest at the beginning, he was the most experienced from the group, lol. I felt sort of jealous. I want a trip like that... hahaha.
Then he joined me to do some shopping. It was still early and we drove back to my house/office. I needed to check some info and he could check his email too. I arranged a cab for him and they would come for him at 6:15pm. We still had some time to kill. Mmm, what to do now? During his first visit, we covered almost everything.
First I didn' know where to go, but then I remembered the bakery where we get birthday cakes was nearby and there we went. Yummy! We went back home at 6 and the taxi arrived at 6:30pm. Bye bye John, keep in touch and I'd be waiting for your pictures. Hopefully I'd be able to visit his hometown eventually...
After he left I started to do my coordinations for the night. I'd meet a friend from highschool at Huaringas, my second house, hahaha. First Friday in Lima and going there was a MUST, hahaha, some piscos!!! It was a bit cool, but I didn't care about that. Wanted to show the tan and tattoo, hahaha. Carola is the one who wants to get a real tattoo and we made a pact.
I was about leaving to meet Carola at the bar, when Matt (another TB) called me. We have been in touch for some months. He was about leaving work and after dinner would be able to meet me. That sounds like a plan! I told him I was meeting friends and he'd be welcome to join us. Around 8pm I arrived to the pisco place. Carola was already there. We started to chat and an hour and 1 pisco later another friend arrived. She used to go to our highschool, but was in another class. The 3 of us were having so much fun until our table got invaded. At the right side there were 3 American guys who were coming closer... and at the left 2 Chilean twin brothers, hahaha. One was really wasted and was talking and talking.
Suddenly my cellphone rang.
Regarding the guys in the bar, Matt thought the Chilean was our friend and started to talk to him, lol. They even exchanged business cards. Oh! we had to go somewhere else and check a band that was playing... it was time to move. Just at this point Matt realized that this guy wasn't a friend of ours, hahaha. Well, a funny story to tell. What happened next will follow in the Second Part of this story ;)
