Then we had to hurry, we should be at La candalaria, a Peruvian peña. It was a kind of theatre where you can have something to eat but it is mostly about song and dance. There were already more TB’s waiting for us at a large table that Yadi had reserved. I cannot remember all there names, Romain was there again with his girlfriend Elena, but I know there was an other dutch guy Marcel with his girlfriend Cynthia. Finally I could talk a little bit Dutch again. J The show was amazing. This was just incredible. So much dancing, music, entertainment and fun! The presenter made a show with the people who have there birthday within a few days from the present day. He found a few and one of them was our Shawn. He was a little bit surprised. But then there was more dancing on stage and our group started also dancing. There were just to many people on the dance floor. J

 

Another happening will start.

The presenter is going to each table to ask if there are people who came from far. You can imagine what happened at our table. He never found so many foreigners at one table. Lets call them by name: Michael from Germany, René from the Philippines, James from Scotland, Jim à USA, Stacey à USA Wisconsin, Romain à France, Malvin à Singapore, Francisco from Puerto Rico, I am from the Netherlands, shawn à USA Nebraska.
A real gentleman

 

After this fun there was time to dance again, and suddenly everybody wanted to dance. Then something else started. We had seen a lot of Peruvian dancing and now he was asking the foreigners to enter the stage to show the traditional dance from there country. Even I was asked to join this group. When it was my turn I did not know what dance the band would play for me. I still don’t know what they have played. The presenter, me and another (crazy) dutch guy were just jumping around holding each other hands. Oké, it was fun, but if this is representative for the Dutch J. After more beers and more dancing the evening should end. It was already 3:30 I think when we stepped outside. Most people wanted to go to bed, but there are always die-hards who haven’t had enough for one day. We were talking about this and I suggested: Lets keep on the tradition, lets go to Tayta again. They agreed and we took cabs to Miraflores again. We came at Tayta, but the door was closed. They wouldn’t let any new people inside. But for us TravBuddies they made an exception. We could enter. Who were the die-hards: Stacey, Yadi, Nelly, me, Shawn, Rene, James and Malvin. I just had some beers and we talked about the meet-up day that just had ended. It was almost 5am when we left Tayta. Just 5 hours more and we had a 24 hour meet-up day. Incredible.

 

For this day I have to thank yadi again for organizing this. It was just a PERFECT day.
