I arrived in Lima, Peru at 5:00 am. The hostel master was kind enough to let me into my room to sleep a bit. Lima feels like Latin America. It could be the indigenous blood that is evident in the faces of the people. I find the Limeños kind, generous, quiet and very patient.
On my day of arrival, I had some Peruvian ceviche—bite size chunks of seafood served yucca and yam and accompanied by a beer and a pisco sour.
playa—estacionamiento (parking lot)
mote—granos de maíz (corn kernels)
I had a strange experience: I was dreaming that I was looking at my watch: 6:51. But knowing that it was a dream I woke and found that it was actually 6:51. Weird. And here I am writing about it.
