Isn't this what you wanted?

So you might be wondering why I haven't posted anything interesting in two months, and the reason for that is very simple. Nothing happens here. This is literally the lamest place I have ever been. Every morning I wake up, eat breakfast, do school, have lunch, do school, then I go to bed. Repeat and uncomfortable amount of times. There is literally nothing exciting to do down here.

Well last week we went to Otuzco, a very small little place that I did not see much of. We went because it has some interesting archeological structures, thought to be Incan graves. Here are TWO pictures. I shall give you nothing more because I'm broke and that makes me cranky.


There. You have what you want. Now get off my lawn

Well Here I Am I Guess














This is where we live. It's a little ghetto. The scenery is relatively similar to Colorado actually, as you can see. Everything here is very different;
Even the Lamborghinis
There are stray dogs everywhere, not the type of strays you'd see in America, they seem well kept and groomed. 





This last one is a tiny and energetic labrador, in a restaurant.

The national dish of Peru is called Coy, and it is made of guinea pig meat.
Check this out.


I'm really tired and I got nothing else so enjoy the rest of these pictures.
At the pool

The most comfortable bike seat ever


A pretty sweet milk ad(beats got milk?)



This guys a little too excited.


Check out the hairstyles at the barbershop

I just think it's funny how the only carpet anywhere is at the pool -.-
Thank you and goodnight

Estoy En Peru

I am sorry about this format, I can't figure out how to transfer directly to the blog.

Now the title is true. It's been a couple days since I've arrived in Lima, and I've naturally seen some cool things here.

First; the hotel we stayed in for the first three nights was called Miramar Hotel (I believe), and it a couple interesting features.
This is taken from my window. This is just a house, with two floors, and no roof. You can see some nice couches there, and they were gone the next day. I have no idea what's going on here. If this is your house let me know what's up por favor.

I am not one who normally takes pictures of toilets, but seriously! What is this thing? Everything about this bathroom is normal, except for this foot toilet. I have no idea what it's for or what it's called. My parent's room didn't have one in there. I guess it's for washing your feet or something.



On Wednesday we went to some important historical square. I don't want to offend anyone or make anyone angry, but I have no idea why it was very significant. I mean it was cool and all, but I don't quite know why it's there. Here's some cool stuff. Enjoy...

This is a huge church/cathedral. It's got all these catacombs and shrines and crazy rooms and things. It is also still in service, and apparently they actually hold worship services. 


Inside I learned some great things, like the value of travel sized textbooks. These are three foot long choir books, so that the entire church choir can use only one book in the middle of everybody.
We went down into the catacombs of all the Archbishops of Lima, Where there were many tombs. I am unclear whose heads these are, but there are many more than you see here.


These poorly formatted pictures are of course of what we ate. We ate at a restaurant on the roof of the square. It was kind of expensive but tasted really good. (Above) This is actually minestrone soup. At least that is what I understand. It looks like vomit but I really enjoyed it actually. The picture above that is of our entrees. To the bottom/right of the picture is Pollo Saltado (I believe it means salted chicken) and the plate in the middle is Lomo Saltado, (salted beef or steak.) They tasted essentially like stir fry, but it is native to Peru.    


This is the President's House. I am unclear whether or not he actually still lives there. While we were there, three or so black sedans with police escorts pulled in and nearly everyone around crowded around to see who it was. There was some type of important thing going on of course.

 
 

These are just pictures around the square.

I love the shops here!
This is hilarious. Frosted Flakes in Portuguese. ¡Ellos son grrriquisimas! I guess it only works in english...

The mannequins are no longer boring! They are entertaining now!
             Milk is sold in bags!!
Also some sweet masks. At una banco for some reason.



Thursday we went to another historical site. This is a pre-Inca structure, completely made of hand formed mud bricks. This is all comprised of mud.








Then We went to the beach. (I hope you like pictures ;) )
Here is the greatest graffiti I have ever seen.
