In which you wish you were me


I just had the most enchanted evening! Perhaps the most I've had in all my time in Lima. A dear friend, a visit to the beach, a churro from Manolos, some lovely children singing Christmas songs.... maybe more details later. Maybe not. But right now, the best of the photos from the beach.















I have about a million more where these came from. And I'm not sure how I chose the one outfit which would match this scenery perfectly. I must have had a moment of pure clairvoyant genius.

Can you imagine how wonderful it is to see a sunset after months of dull gray skies? I'll tell you: Really really wonderful.



P.S. I went to Da Mario today (follow that to get caught up on my love of that restaurant) for the last time before break and they were all like "You haven't come for two weeks now!" I heard the Cheers theme song, folks, it was magical.

    Nick: I do in fact like lima beans, but unfortunately I haven't seen a one in Lima. Shame!

  7. And oh yes, the warmness is an illusion. At the time it was actually quite chilly.
