In Lima

Were in Lima. We arrived yesterday afternoon without incident. Of course, it's overcast but not too cold.

Fortunately, it turned out that today was a holiday - the feast day of St. Peter and St. Paul- so the cousins were all off work.  We could tell  it was a holiday because it was so quiet in San Felipe.  There was none of the usual morning noises -gardners at work, traffic and construction on nearby streets, etc. It was even quieter quieter than on weekends!

We got together at Juancho's (my cousin, not me) apartment and jointly fixed lunch. Diego contributed a pumpkin soup and rice, Liz a cooked vegetable salad, I lentils with pork and bacon, and Jose and Carla a tres leches cake. 

By the time we got finished and sat down to eat, it was three o'clock, and after that hearty lunch, folks took advantage of the holiday by watching TV and taking naps.

Good times so far!
