Great sleep!  Up at 9.00. Real quiet around here.  Angie greeted me with breakfast...toasted buns,bowl of homemade orange marmalade and a hot pot of Peruvian coffee.....awesome!  Cant stop thinking of our krazy driver Migel racing through downtown Lima putting everyone in his way at risk of certain death by Kia.  We sat around the hostal for awhile emailing Cookie for the first time.  The poor girl emailed us 3 times since we've been on the run but we could never reply until now.  Tania was our hostess and made sure she gave Angie a big hug as we were leaving. We walked up a few streets in Miraflores where Angie picked up a beautiful Alpaca scarf. Took a bus to Cruz del Sur bus lines and now were on the move again to Nazca.  We decided to explore Lima when we are back here again at the end of our adventure but for now we are excited to meet up with our amazing daughter along with Dave, Aly and Phil. Two hours down the coast and theres no shortage of orange groves,fields of corn,bannanas and mangoes.  Finally a Peru that looks a little like what I had imagined. Up until now theres been nothing but ramshackle tin and wood dwellings with a stark desert landscape on one side of the road and  the huge Pacific ocean on the other.  So close to so much water yet so little rainfall. Anyhoo we scored the two front seats in the upper deck of the bus so we get the best view.  Just looking over at Angie.  Shes amazing to travel with.  Never complains bout anything. They served a meal on the bus which came a a surprise. Rice with mystery meat which we thought might be guinea pig,Inka Kola to wash it down.  I'm teasing Angie bout the mystery meat but it did'nt seem to curb her apetite, she devoured the whole plate. Arrived in Nazca late and found directions to Friends Hostal where Cookie and the gang were staying.Started walking down the dark ,narrow steets  when suddenly a loud,high pitched scream echoed thoughout the neighbourhood.....omg it was Cookie and Dave standing on the curb in disbelief cuz there weren't expecting our arrival until tomorrow. Wow was it good to see Cookie again.  This made our trip.  If we didn't do anything else we would be completely happy! 



Nice picture. It's always great when you eat the wrong part of the mystery fruit.
