25: Pooped…

…but feeling much much better.

Back in Lima, and more excited than you can imagine about being reunited with my suitcase! Different shoes, pants, shirts that I actually packed for the trip, all my toiletries! We gathered around the Christmas tree (Ann has hers up already) and I doled out all the things I brought down here for them! It was so fun.

24: The best meal I never ate

Over-exertion, altitude, and something I ate (Kate, too). We walked down to the plaza mayor this afternoon, after taking a little rest, and while Ann, Brian & Addie set off in a different direction, and met up with them for an early dinner. Mine consisted mainly of aqua con gas, and tiny little tastes of a very few things.

By all accounts, the food was excellent. The service was stellar, and I can wholeheartedly vouch for that. I would return if I am ever in Cusco again.

Black Friday is a thing here? We even saw signs for Black Weekend. haha.

22: Ready or not

We arrived in Lima last night but my checked bag did not. It was supposed to be on a later flight but we couldn’t wait, so the airline said they would deliver it. That wouldn’t be earlier than 10am, though, and we were leaving for the airport & Cusco just before 1pm. To hedge bets, we walked to the mall this morning to pick up a few things.

A couple of t-shirts (already altered to my liking, almost… I only have a pair of embroidery scissors with me), a pair of pants, some socks & whatnot.

The good news is that my bag was delivered, but not until we’d already left. One of Brian’s friends was able to go over & take delivery. Addie doesn’t have his hiking shoes, nor I mine, and my hiking poles would have been nice, not to mention my lucky earrings. Looking forward to being reunited on Saturday when we return!

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving!
