I told ya we would stop back to trap coffee. I mean who would get Starbucks when you can get this?! The barista showed us some cafe art and we got a fruit cold brew and cafe latte to go.
We wanted to see Jade’s work in the gallery. Google said it was closed but I found Jade online and he said they were open. Always good to double check. I ended up buying small prints for souvenirs and a large print to take home. Thatbwas hard because the lady didn’t speak English but good ole Google translator came to save the day! We paid and she packaged them up. We planned on swinging by later. We had a night flight so we had all the time in the world in Barranco... well at least a few hours anyway.
As you could guess we were hungry. Time for some chifa! Peruvian asian cuisine. Chun Yion has super high reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to say it was pretty darn good. Look at those dishes? Don’t be jelly.
After lunch we went back to the hotel to charge up and then off to the board walk. You can tell they have plans to build the boardwalk up. It looks very commercial and Incak see it being very popular in the next 5-10 years.
I confacted fhe shirt place I liked at La Féria via FB. We planned a shirt drop at Jade Rivera’s shop. Christy said that was weird but I thought .. If they would do it that would be cool. Everything worked out. We even got to see Jade’s work at a museum in Miraflores. It was closing in a few days so we were lucky to just make it.
The end of our time in Peru was coming to a close. We had to get going because traffic was getting bad. We stopped at a brewery in Barranco and had pizza (crust made of purple corn), croquettes and beer. Not bad at all. Guess who stopped by to see us off? Our Peruvian friend Daniel! A nice ending to an awesome trip.
traffic insane from the hotel to the airport. We managed to get on our Soirit flight and head off to Florida. Minus the 24 hour sickness I had, this was quite the trip. I really liked South America. I hope to go back someday. I wanted to write some posts (even though it’s not even good writing) to make sure i document pieces of the trip. So many great parts to this trip. I won’t say adios but I will say... until we meet again... hasta luego Perú. ;)
One is the shirts from Attomo. Petty cool huh? Who wouldn't want a T-shirt with ramen and cassette tapes.
