A Spectacular Display of Colors

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!

My sister and her husband give guided tours in Peru. Here are some of their pictures.

Water tour Solgevik 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!


About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
