As our loyal reader may have noticed (Hi Mom), we have been a bit behind with our blog entries lately. This is partly due to the happy fact that we have been joined in Peru by some friends.
Nick, Pla and Dave all have about 3 weeks to explore Peru, and we now find ourselves living the exciting life of a vacation again, without much time for work or blogging- and it’s been great! Our little pair of two has turned into a merry band of five- a veritable gang with which to see Peru.
We spent our first few days in Lima skulking around the city with our collars popped up, snapping and hopping in unison. It’s true. We are pretty tough! In between all the smoking cigarettes and getting into knife fights we found time to check out the local markets and churches, and a pretty amazing laser/water/music show at the Parque del Agua.
I, for one was not expecting too much from the show, but one of the guys who worked at the hostel said he really liked it, so we went ahead and went.
EPIC!!! What they can do in Lima with lasers and lights and music and water is pretty freakin’ amazing, and don’t even get me started on the robots!
But even the robots don’t beat the prides of kitties roaming parque Kennedy in Miraflores, stalking butterflies and dozing in the sun.
Miraflores is an area of Lima that looks more like Malibu, California than Latin America.
It is also the area that houses the majority of the tourists and the best park ever. No one knows for sure where all the cats came from, but everyone agrees that they have been there for about 20 years. They are as tame and cuddly as any well-cared for house cats, and don’t seem to venture out of the park.
