After we returned from Pachacamac, Waki took us to this little Columbian restaurant to eat. We first were served an appetizer that consisted of small flat fried cakes, like our pan cakes, made from mashed bananas and corn meal with fried sliced sausages in the middle of the platter. We were given a couple of small dishes of pico de gallo, like ours only chopped very fine. The main dish was a white corn cake fried then split and a filling of chicken/beef/white cheese. Very filling and very, very good. We had hoped to get some bunuelos, a fried corn ball with cheese, but they did not feel like making them. We also were served a pitcher of a juice like beverage. It was very tasty and resembled apple cider with pulp. It is made partially from the stalks of sugar cane that is boiled then sqeezed. The inside of the restaurant only had a couple of tables. The cooking area was very small.

As we have gone to the Area office to home evening with the other
American couples we met Brother and Sister Anderson. Only they aren't an American couple. Brother Anderson is from Canada. Sister Anderson is Peruvian. They have been married 30+ years. They are actually snow birds. During the winter they live in Peru. In the summer they live in Canada. For Christmas our group is
helping a branch over by the temple. We divided up assignments
and Karen volunteered to be in charge of the treets. Sister Anderson is helping Karen. So Saturday we went to Chorillos with the Anderson to a store that sells in bulk. A store very much like Sams Club or Costco. That is where we bought the candy.

thousands of little shops or spaces where they sell their wares.
Karen bought a little Peruvian decorated purse, some post cards, a Peruvian Nativity Set and a figurine of a couple sitting on a bench with the woman holding a small child on her lap. While we were there we saw some dancers.

When we went to the water park there were these signs everywhere. The sign does not say what you think. It says to stay off the grass. Karen was actually taking a picture and stepped back off the sidewalk about a foot at the most and a police officer came up and told her to get back on the sidewalk.
