Lima lights! my city is big...
Lima's airport looks better these days. There are new gates and the remodeling works finally ended. Osvaldo wanted to eat something before boarding, but I didn't since I was expecting a big meal at the plane, haha. Our gate was one of the new ones and there was a nice cafe next to it. We went there and he got a sandwich and a coke, while I got a cup of coffee. Our flight was at 12:35am and finally at midnight we started to board.

I was just wondering who would sit next to me. I decided not to sit until I had to do it. I would be sit for the next 6 hours... There was a man who smiled when he saw me just standing and told me he always does the same. He's always traveling to Houston and flies 1st class everytime... lucky him! I told him, I didn't expect flying on 1st class.
cheers!
It was a surprise, a good one! So, we started to chat and ordered 2 glasses of wine. We waited until they closed the doors of the plane to see if there would be a chance for me to move next to him and the seat next to him was free, so I moved, yay!

The flight attendant came with the menu and we both chose the fish, at same time we asked for more wine :P The dinner was good. The fish was tasty and I loved the salad. I didn't eat the bread or the chocolate, there was a lot of food. Well, we kept on chatting and it turned to be that Pedro - this is the name of the man - and I work in the same industry, haha. Small world... Everytime the flight attendant came by, Pedro ordered for refills of wine, red for him and white for me. I guess we both finished the wine stock of the plane, ooooops!

It was so nice chatting with him.

I didn't think we were noisy at all, but a man asked him not to talk so loud, mmm. I think the man wanted to sleep. Nevermind, we kept on talking but softer, shhhhh. My original idea was to sleep during the flight, specially because I got a comfortable seat, but it didn't happen. The chat was so interesting that I ended sleeping just 45min. I tried not to sleep, but I was tired and the wine...

When I woke up, Pedro told me he wanted me not to sleep. He lost his chatting partner... but well, it was just for a while. Despite a bit of turbulence the flight was nice. Good company and being spoiled by the flight attendants... who could complain about that?
