Ok, what to do now? We still wanted to eat Peruvian food and we all prepared ourselves for a big food experience, which means we were already hungry, hahaha. I just had a cup of tea for breakfast ;) Where to go now? Despite it was cloudy, we went to a restaurant that's right next to the beach. It was windy, but it was warm inside, plus all the food, yummy!!! We'd get more than enough calories, hahaha. This restaurant is very nice, have been here before and now they have Peruvian food, but also International dishes. Nevermind, focus on the Peruvian ones, hahaha.
Round 1 was about seafood - actually all the rounds were seafood for me, hehehe.
I have tried cebiche and tiradito many times, but here I found a new one. Tiradito (slices of fish) with Cocona dressing. The cocona is a fruit from the rainforest, what a great combination! Ok, you'd never stop learning about Peruvian food, hahaha. A warm and tasty soup was part of round 2. BiG was having so much fun with the crawfish, hahaha. It was perfect having something hot. It was a bit chilly, brrrr.
BiG's friends were a bit intrigued how we met. They found it so funny he had friends in Lima before even arriving hahaha. We were talking about TB and he met the Vegas and LA crew and I met some of them in KC Meet Up, so it was wonderful talking about common friends: Sal, RJ, Mell, Jen... sweet! BiG was also telling me about his Peru travel plans. They'd stay in Lima until the 30th and come back the 8th for a couple of days before going back to the USA. Mmm, I hope there would be more TB's during these days so we could have a mini Meet Up, that would be awesome!
Well, we were so full, but couldn't leave without trying desserts, hahaha. We went together to get desserts and got different ones so we could try a bit of everything.
Yesterday, we couldn't go into the church in Miraflores' square, so there we went. BiG was looking for art exhibition and the city hall always runs one. This time the topic was urban art. It was cool! There weren't pictures, but art pieces. Some of them seemed to be familiar. Oh yes! I have seen the same characters in several graffitis around the city. The artist was the same. The exhibition was cool!
It was almost 5 when we left Miraflores and drove back home. Tomorrow they'd go south east of Lima, I'd like to join them but had plans with the family (including the food festival). Anyway, we'd meet on Monday! I had a great time and ate too much, so instead of taking a bus I decided to take a 20min walking, really needed it, hahaha.
