The sky this morning at 6:30am caught my attention and I thought “I’m sure this is exactly what Tumblr wants to see!”
Lunch today was called ‘Pallar con bistek’. I end up going to the same place for lunch because I like their ‘ají’ which is a type of salsa and the one at this particular Menu is super spicy. Nothing quite like Sriracha, but it’ll suffice.
Had a Peruvian TEFL student teach my class today for practice and realized that teaching ESL is definitely not for everyone. Call me crazy but if you’re going to review vocabulary, it might help to know the definitions before hand. At some point you’ve gotta draw the line between practice makes perfect and common sense.
Had potato, yuca, rice, and beef soup today called ‘Caldo blanco’ followed by ‘Matasquita’ which was delicious and as usual, cheap. If you ever go to Peru and don’t try a Menu, then you’ll forever remain an ignorant tourist. Oh I’m sorry Americans, a Menu is a super cheap ($2) restaurant where you get soup, a choice between 3 entrees, and a giant pitcher of juice. I choose which Menu to eat at based upon which has more locals packed into it. Which is also a good rule to follow in general, when in doubt, do as the locals do.
Moved into my new place today and planning on cooking a feast for dinner. Nothing like trashing the kitchen after you spend all afternoon cleaning it. And as much as I’d like to make sure the patch job on the roof works, I could do without the rain.
