A recap of how our Monday and Tuesday were spent: we didn’t do a whole lot of anything. Let me explain. We had such a productive rainy Sunday that Lora and I wanted to have a relaxing day on Monday. The boys were hoping to get a noonish start to their day and had planned on renting a car for the remainder of their stay. Instead, they dilly-dallied for a good two hours, having lunch and then waiting for the car rental guy only to come up empty. So Lora and I did a little bit of tanning by the pool.

As for Monday evening, Lora and Frank wanted to see the cabaret show at the Tropicana. They paid nearly $100 each ($70 CUC) for three hours of entertainment, and since it was a semi-slow Monday night the afterhours club was closed.

Peter and I walked to a delightful little paladar called La Cocina de Lilliam in the Embassy district and splurged on a delicious three course meal with red wine. This paladar was a great but pleasant contrast to the crowded yet intimate La Guarida. La Cocina was set in the side courtyard of a large, lavish house. There were waterfalls and fountains spread about the courtyard as well as plenty of green plants and birdcages with cockatiels and parakeets. Peter and I had a really nice conversation about traveling and other things that time seemed to float by undetected. Somehow we didn’t get home until midnight, then Lora and Frank soon followed. We drank Cuba Libres and smoked Cuban cigars on the patio, listening to the ocean. We retired for the evening at 1 or so.

  • Arequipa

    Arequipa itself is a very large tourist hub in the southern high plains for trekkers and adventure travelers. After a nap and a late breakfast, we walked the crowded streets trying to get a sense of the place.

    Pisco unfortunately lives up to its reputation as "The Armpit of Peru."
