Last night after wandering around downtown Trujillo again, we came back to the house and hung out with the family a bit.  We gave them some gifts from Nicaragua and then we all sat at the dining room table and they shared suggestions for our various travel destinations in Peru.  We asked where the best place was to try the national drink "Pisco Sour" and they told us a few places, but then they brought out their Pisco bottles and Carolina's parents went to the kitchen to mix us some drinks.  It was great!  We got to try some fresh Pisco Sours--they are a mix of Pisco (kind of like Brandy), lime juice, sugar, and ice.  I was a little hesistant to try them since I've heard some mixed reviews, but it was actually pretty tasty :)  I guess it depends on where you find them and who makes them.  Anyway, we had a couple of those and talked about Peru late into the night.  It was a great way to spend our last night here.  Today we're going to go exploring in another place, but we fly out late tonight for an overnight flight heading south of Lima.

Not sure if we'll be around internet to make phone calls today, but Happy Thanksgiving to all!  We did have a turkey sandwich last night :)


  1. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy thoughts for safe and fun travels!! Love ya...

  2. It's funny I actually have heard of Pisco Sours because of the show Three Sheets. They looked good until he mixed it incorrectly. I think he had in Chile
