!Hola Promise to Write! Here are our top five Peruvian Memories to date: 5. Visiting the Inca Ruins and the markets of the Scared Valley. 4. Spicy trout ceviche, cafe con leche, alpaca stew, quinoa soup, chicha, and pisco sours. 3. several awkward marriage proposals from local vendors and waiters. 2. ‘Motown’ party at our hostel featuring free ‘jelly shots’. 1 Being told by our waiter to zip up my sweater because he had “a pretty good view” from where he stood. Love, Erin + Lindsey”
Sorry I am not exactly sure how to make the upside down explanation point and I don’t want to look it up (I am pretty lazy…). Anyways I love this PC! This really makes me want to go to Peru! The food and sights sound amazing, and i love me some Motown. Did the waiter that told you to zip up your sweater, also propose to you after the good view you gave him? (^__–)
This reminds me of when I was in Cairo and they asked me how many camels my friend was worth, I said “just one .” Just kidding, I told him too many to count. They probably weren’t as suave as the Peruvians.
“Dear Stinky Tofu – Did someone invent you as a prank?!! I only swallowed you to get the stench out of my mouth. Let’s never do it again. Unless I lose my sense of smell. In that case you’ll just be tofu. P.S. Stop saying you are just like blue cheese. You are not. -Scott”
There is a very good reason stinky tofu is named stinky tofu. The way I usually describe it is, imagine the dirtiest alley in Chinatown on a hot day, ripe with rotten food and urine, all pack into a bite sized square . I’ve tried it three times so far and every time I wish I hadn’t, I will try it one more time, but I will wait until I am in Taiwan, hopefully I will not cry from eating it this time.
“Today I took the train from Val Pariso to Vina del Mar in Chile and saw the beauty of this coastline. In the background was a man with a guitar singing to his girlfriend for money. That coastline with that music was priceless”
“@Promisetowrite, Greeting from Madagascar! We’re in the midst of longer days and warmer weather and I hope to send you sunny thoughts as you brave out the winter on the other side of the world! -Beatnomad”
“I spent the night at a fancy resort hotel. The rich really have it good! There’s soft, pretty robes, room service with as many omelet fillings as you want, an a/c and stylish ceiling fan, and a chaise lounge and a river with sea turtles and dolphins. Yes, the rich get private Dolphins.”
A friend of my had a wedding at that hotel, which is called the Kahala. It was amazing, beautiful orchids growing out of the walls, private beach, mini man made island, and the dolphins! Even though after watching The Cove I promised I would never enjoy seeing captured dolphins, I still kind of did =/ …I downed a few Blue Hawaiians in their honor.
‘That is my new office! Living my dream and have relocated to Tobago – the Caribbean’s best kept secret! We get barely any Americans here!!! I wake up in the morning, run on the beach, a few hours work, surf, swim at sunset… I feel a million miles from London and I love it!! Everyone should visit here…sexiest kite surfers in the whole of the Caribbean! Loads of love, Kinza xxx P.S. Can you believe China was 3 years ago?!!’
I met this girl when we were both teaching English in China and she is amazing! She Co-founded a organization called The Raising Hope Foundation which helps Orphaned kids in Ghana, check it out! http://www.raisinghopefoundation.co.uk/
