Peru is beautiful! The weather here is outstanding. I only needed a very light jacket for the evening. That was mostly because I felt like I was getting bitten by mosquitos.
Our “work” day started our day by meeting another missionary, Quinton, and his wife. They serve in the inner city of Lima, and we will be working with them doing our dental clinic. They took us by the clinic to meet with some of the doctors there, and to show us around.
We have clean clothes!!! I have been looking pretty rough the past two days.
For lunch, we went to Chili’s. : )
I took in some fitness bread, banana, almond butter, and strawberries. I also had an apple and sunflower butter. Have any of you tried fitness bread? I got it at Whole Foods, but Kroger sells it as well. If you haven’t had it… DON’T! If I wasn’t in dire straights down here for food, I wouldn’t eat it.
It tastes like sweaty gym socks. EEeek!
Nita is the master barterer. I got something special for my mom while we were there… can’t reveal what it is because she reads my blogs. : ) Since grandma passed, mom has been in a flurry to get to Ohio and to take care of things. I thought this might cheer her up a bit. (It is for your jungle room, Mom!)
Luvy got alpaca for dinner!
He said it was like beef, and he prefers beef. : ) I, of course, had to brown bag it again.
One more day left in Lima. We are going to try to go into one of the downtown quitas. Thanks for all your prayers!
