Well, this is my 3rd day In Lima and it's been fun as hell. I'm travelling with two of my buddies and I speak spanish, so it's been easy to get around. WE attended the Peruvian food festival (Mistura) for two day straight and the food has been awesome. I tried Alpaca and that was awesome! We're heading out to Cusco tomorrow for three manana.

We're on the coast so the weather is nice and cool, overcast a bit, with a nice breeze.

The club scene was great when I was there in 1988......is it still? Also, there was a general friendly vibe in the city, still the same?

My friend's sister nearly died in Lima. She bonked her head on the hotel sink and had a hemorrhage in her brain. When she went to the hospital the language barrier prevented them from telling the nurse her problem, who diagnosed it as heat stroke or dehydration.

Yes, the club scene is cool and friendly. We've been hanging out at a club that stays open till 4am and then hooked up with the waiting staff to go hang out at another club till 7am.

Go to Huancayo! Two of my employees are from there; I have wanted to go for years. My employees are two of the best people I have ever met; makes me think Huancayo is a great place.

Okay, I have a story. My buddy, who's ex-army (fister), was drunk as hell and talking to two hookers, while I was busy talking to the very cute waitress (Anna) that has taken a liking to me. I told my buddy (who we have nicknamed "Filth") to stop talking to the two skanks, but he insisted that I translate "How much for both?" They responded, "400 soles for both and we will do anything you want!" I was like x10. My buddy says, "Hell, no!" So, they then drop the price to 200 soles, which is $71. My buddy lights up and starts to walk out with them after they say this, so I follow cuz these hookers look shady as hell. I can't see my other buddy so I text him I have a situation with Filth and need to talk dumbass out of the situation. I get no response because he never checks his phone and is busy talking to a legit local girl who know english. We get to the hotel and the front desk says no visitors. I'm relieved, thinking, this shit is over. But, is it? Hell no. The hookers then say, "We have a place, come with us." I see my fucking live flash before my eyes and see us getting stabbed to death at some hotel. I try to talk my buddy out of it but he's on a mission. Next thing you know, we are in a taxi for about 8 mins and end up at another hotel, which is putting it loosely. My buddy pays for the room and we walk about 5 ft and go into a room...which looks like a room from a horror movie. The room is in poor shape, with one bed, a couch and a bathroom. The paint looks old and theres a mirror on the wall at bed level. At this point, we get a text from our buddy telling us the wait staff are saying we are probably get robbed, killed or both. At this point, my buddy sobers up and says, "what the fuck are we doing here? We nees to ex-fil asap" i give the hookers some money for wasting their time and smooth things over im spanish. I grab my buddy and get the hell out of dodge. We end up back at the club and the waitress thas was sweet one completely gives me the cold shoulder cuz she saw me leave with Filth and the skanks. That's what I get for tryimg to save my buddy's ass.

I'll never forget you, Anna. End of story.

ETA: We dubbed the room "The Slaughter Room." We laugh about now cuz nobody was hurt, killed or maimed.
