Peru Dia Tres - Wherein We Encounter a Day of Rest

Sunday we rested. We slept in with the intention of taking a city tour through the hotel, but instead rambled into the hotel restaurant a few minutes until noon with Jordan and their friend Daniel. We heard our waiter tell us that the buffet lasted only until noon, which I thought explained the beautifully appointed, but sparsely seated dining room. With only five minutes to go, I was the only one who wanted to tackle the enormous buffet, so I grabbed a plate and frantically heaped food on it from the luxurious salad bar. When I finally sat down, I was informed that the buffet was, in fact, just starting, which explained both the quizzical looks I received from the hotel staff and the different food stations bulging with newly prepared delights.

After lunch we strolled back across the street to Larcomar in search of a battery charger for Julia's camera and I smoked her at air hockey 2-0. She also decided to pass on the Starbucks coffee because the one she had there earlier tasted weird or something, and it was the first time she'd had a coffee from that company that didn't measure up to her exacting specifications.

For dinner, we met Susy's familia for seafood at Restaurant Costa Verde on the ocean, where I learned my brother had become ill overnight. I think it was the first time I've ever seen him not finish a plate of lobster, but of course he tried. I had pasta and shrimp.
