While we were having lunch and chatting, actually it was fun how Eric "talked" to my parents, since just mom speaks a bit English, haha, I mentioned the fact Eric was going to Caral and I would stay in Lima. Caral is the most ancient city and was recently discovered. It's still not so popular, but it's very interesting. During the past year I had 2 opportunities to visit it, but unfortunately no of them became true. This was my 3rd chance and I was about loosing it, again... My dad was happy with the idea I'd spend a quiet weekend at home, but my mom's eyes were wide open! "Have you been in Caral?" I said: "no" and she just asked me: "What are you waiting for? Let's do it NOW!". So I guessed that I used reverse psycology without knowing it, haha. So much fun!
We packed fast and at 5pm we were ready to leave. We met Elena at her hostel and took a cab to the bus station, which was located in a not very nice area of the city, but whatever. The drive to Barranca, the closest town, would last 4hrs something. I'd need just a bit of patience ;)
