I'll ask for more travels :P
Taxi driver was young and sort of crazy, hahaha. He drove really fast. It didn't take us longer than 30min to arrive to the airport, which is amazing since it was the middle of the afternoon... nevermind we did it safe, although I was crossing my fingers most of the time :P

I didn't need to be at the airport such in advance. I wasn't checking any bag and already had my boarding pass, pffff. Oh well, at least Lima's airport is nice, hehe. So instead of going straight to customs and security I started to walk in the other way. I saw some other restaurants, airline offices and even a chapel! I had no idea there was one here. Well, I assumed there should be one, since we are a Catholic country, but never saw it until now. It was right at the end of a hall and was small.
gate was empty... flight wasn't crowded either
But it wasn't empty, there were 2 people there, hehe.

Ok, time to go back to the regular area. I decided to go through security and customs, although it was early. I was doing the line and the guy at security asked where I was going. I said: Cali. And he said: "The capital of Salsa! You are gonna have a blast there!" Cool, Fun is what I'm always looking for :)

Since I had lots of time, I decided to be a good girl and helped people having problem filling forms and finding their gates, hahaha. I should work at the airport, hahaha. I was talking on the cellphone and noticed the battery was about dying. The gate was almost empty, so I looked for a seat close to the plug and let my cellphone charging, while I was reading and listening to some music.
Yes, perfect for a foodie!
Thank God for the iPods, hahaha.

It was 6 something when we started to board. The flight wouldn't be direct. It'd make a quick stop in Quito. The plane was ok, but didn't have the individual screens, buuuu. I grabbed one of the complimentary newspapers and was so happy to find an article about the restaurant that won for the best cebiche at the food festival, hahaha. It's not a fancy one and I didn't know its location, but here I even found the phone number, yay!!!!

I was about grabbing my book, when I noticed that the airplane magazine was about Gastronomy in South America. They were even recommending restaurants in the major cities, including Lima, yay! I was about writing the names down, but better take the magazine with me, shhhh. I had a plan, hehehe.
