I know this is way to behind to upload this… I’ve been so lazy lately updating the blog..
So the second week in Arequipa then, after the visit to Colca, was just a chill out week. On Sunday I had lunch with kevins family, his father invited us there and I met kevins younger sisters, so sweet! : ) We watched a movie and then we went to their mother’s house for a while. After that we visited a fruit market and his father bought me some fruit I’ve never tried before, and I found my new love – grenadilla ;) Hehe. We came back home with tons of fruits.. good that both me and Kevin loves it.. he always does fruit juices though, but I eat them as they are. I love that this country has a lot of fruits, and a lot of avocados! Haha.
So what else have I done for a whole week… well I took 2 more salsa lessons : ) And I also finally made a braid in my hair, love it. After that I bought threads of acrame to do my own bracelets too, and I’ve done a few…. I’m learning :) Difficult but fun!
I’ve also been shopping a little bit and I sent a package back home, 4,5 kg for 150 soles (56 USD) which I thought was quite ok actually, cheaper than in Mexico! I also bought some gifts for Duilio and his mother :)
Kevin had 2 italian couchsurfers over too, but they weren’t really around that much.. I did meet up with German and his son and had a evening where I showed them how to make a webpage on wordpress for their association, as thanks for him showing me around in Colca. It’s was lot’s of fun!
The last weekend before I left, Kevin took me to a birthday party with his friend Sandra, who also announced she was getting married. : ) The house was beautiful, and the neighbourhood too, it felt like I was in the US (even if I’ve never been there, it was like in movies). At first I felt a little bit uncomfortable as I always do in high society but after talking to everybody they really were all nice and funny. :) Especially Sandra, such a sweet girl.
Then it was time for me to move on to Cuzco after 2 weeks in arequipa. I hadn’t planned on staying there for so long, but I really got along well with Kevin and I felt like home : ) I was so sad to leave him and Arequipa that I almost cried on my way to Cuzco… good that I traveled with Cruz Del Sur once again, so I had a lot of entertainment onboard… (all though once again, they gave me ham in the vegetarian meal… so NONE of my damn trips with them has there been vegetarian food even if I have ordered it 3 times! Unbelievable!)
