Friday evening nothing important was planned to happen. Then my friend Mayu called and asked if I was doing something special. Of course not! Did I want to do something special? Yes! I had never been to the water tour in a big park in central Lima, so that’s where I wanted to go.
The distance from La Molina where I am staying to this awesome place is about 13 miles, but it’s not like driving that distance back home. Here the traffic is heavy so it takes much longer. We had no clue about the shows but we came exactly on time for the amazing evening show.
I had heard about the display, I had seen some pictures, but it was nothing like the real thing. It reminds me of Job’s words to the Lord, “My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you” (Job 42:5). It’s one thing to hear about something, but what a difference to see it in person!
The Tunnel is amazing. It’s water. You walk into it dry and you come out dry, except maybe for the shoes. My friend and I weren’t brave enough to give it a try. If you ever come to Lima, you give it a try!
My sister and her husband give guided tours in Peru. Here are some of their pictures.
This has been a very busy day, I’m ready to “iron my ears” (planchar oreja). What a funny expression! How about this one? Wishing someone to dream with the little angels (sueña con los angelitos). It’s like saying “sweet dreams” in English. That’s what I’m going to have—sweet dreams!
