As expected Eric slept like a baby almost until noon. I was expecting him to get up, while I was in the gym, but nothing happened. Honestly I wasn't worried at all about that since I knew the past days weren't comfortable at all, but my father asked me to check if everything was fine with Eric, since nobody heard about him during the whole day, lol

We had lunch at home, very quiet and relaxed. Then Eric brought his computer to my office and was checking his mails. He brought 3 gifts with him. He had presents for me and Gunther :) How sweet!!! I got a nice xmas deer and chocolates for the family and Gunther got a Mini xmas Gunther. Super cute!!! I haven't still given it to him. I'm afraid he'd destroy it, mmm. The 3rd box was given to him by the Japanese family I was supposed to meet in Detroit but couldn't do it at the end.
Mini Xmas Gunther!!! how sweet
Luckily Eric was able to visit them and left the gift my cousins sent them. Thanks Eric! I thought this 3rd present was for my cousin, so I'd give her a call to figure it out when I could deliver it. It was around 3pm and I needed to go to the bank and then pick up Gunther from the grooming. I asked Eric to join me, yay! It would be the 1st time he and Gunther would meet.

Usually Gunther is so loud when he's driving with me, but not this time. Eric managed to keep him quiet and without barking. How impressive! Back at home I checked work and my plans for the night. Last week I talked to Romain and asked him if he'd be able to meet Eric and me for a Cheese & Wine. Yay! he would be able to do it! I also contacted Elena and let her know about our plans. Ok, we set an hour: 7:30pm! Around 7, Eric and I went for some supplies aka wine and cheese.
the French in charge of the cheese ;)
Romain arrived with another bottle of wine and we sat the table. The cheeses were there, also the crackers and multiple bottles of wine.

Elena sent a SMS, she would come with a nice Brazilian architect (these were her textual words) she met that day early. They showed up with another bottle of wine and more cheese. Luca, seemed to be a nice person. The 3 of us have already had a first glass of wine, but they caught up with us fast haha. First we toasted for the international friendship, 5 people from 5 different countries. I have to be honest this kind of international meetings are not a novelty for me anymore, although I enjoy every single one of them, but for Luca it was something completely unreal. He couldn't believe it, haha. Well, if you are a TB you understand it easily and most important you enjoy it!

We were just chatting and chilling out.
I'm gonna miss Rom!!!
Romain has been living in Peru for almost 1 year, but had to leave the country soon, how sad :( I'm gonna miss him a lot!!! But before leaving South America in order to go back to Paris he'd be backpacking around. Hopefully we'd be able to meet in Ecuador, that would be awesome!!!

We were trying different wines and cheeses, while we were having a fun time. But, it was getting late and last time I had problems since my parents and my brother had to work the next morning, so we decided to leave. But was the party over? No way, we would continue it but somewhere else, haha. Romain had to work the next morning too, but he gave us a ride. First we were thinking about having a couple of drinks at a cafe in Miraflores, but they were closing when we arrived.

So where to go now? Well, the answer was so obvious. Where can we go on a Wed night? Tayta!

We got our piscos and started to enjoy the live music. We were having fun and stayed there for a couple of hours. Just hanging out, chatting and trying to avoid stockers, haha. Eric and me walked Elena back to her hostel. Then we took a cab and drove back home. I had to work the next morning and needed to catch some sleep. What would happen tomorrow? :P
