Ali's Last Night in Peru

We started off the morning at San Pedro Market, where Ali finished up shopping for everyone in San Francisco. I wanted tamales from the market, but every time we go, the woman selling them isn't there.

After the market, we found an amazing pollo a la brasa (roasted chicken) place that even had a salad bar! It was next door to a tiny casino the size of a shoe store, so I went in and gambled (and lost) 1 sol.

I also talked to the people from FairPlay about starting classes and my home stay tomorrow. Exciting!

For dinner, Ali wanted to find a fancy place to eat Lomo Saltado (a steak dish), so we went to San Blast Street. We ate at a place that was by far the fanciest yet. We shared an appetizer of mashed potatoes that was stuffed with chicken and then deep fried. Then she ate steak and I had an avocado salad that had a new fruit I had never had before. It's called aguymente, and it's delicious.

After dinner, we went to Paddy's Pub, the highest Irish-owned bar in the world. We also made a stop at a super weird club with a bunch of Peruvian teenagers standing around in an awkward circle on the dance floor.
