Starting with yesterday (Friday), I slept in later than I should have and then did absolutely nothing all day. Okay, now on to today. :) Just kidding, kind of. Yesterday I did sleep in, but I was fairly productive in the morning. I took a final assessment for my Living and Learning class and sent in that final paper. Then, I watched the movie, The Proposal, which is a good one. If you want a good romantic comedy I would suggest watching it. :) Then, I tried doing some homework and I was going to start and finish my Ethnography paper, but we both know that didn't happen. I think I got a sentence and a half written and then Tonisha came over and we watched the movie Dioses. Dioses is the movie that I watched in Cine on Tuesday and the movie that my final paper is on, so I'm sure I will watch it at least one more time this weekend so that I can write a good review. After that, Tonisha left and I laid down for bed and not soon after, I felt a tremor. This one was shorter than all the other ones I have felt here, but it was a little bit scarier because I was laying in my lofted bed thinking how would I even begin to get down if there was a strong earthquake that hit Lima. Luckily, I didn't have to find out what I would do though. :) So, of course, I had to look up the earthquake on the internet when I woke up this morning. I'm sure the Peruvians think nothing of it but I'm still not used to them so I like knowing where the tremors come from. It came from about 120 miles north of Lima and it was a 5.0 earthquake. Anyway, I went to sleep after that and then as soon as I knew it my Saturday was starting.
|La Isla San Lorenzo, la Isla El Frontón, la Isla Cavinzas y las Islas Palominos|

Anyway, we stayed in the water for awhile and it was such a curiousity show. They were staring at us and we were staring at them. It was funny. We then boarded the boat and went around the island back to Callao. When we were on the boat, they gave us CocaCola/IncaKola and a bowl of chips and pretzels sticks. I'm pretty sure we ate about 5 or 6 bowls of snacks. Then, as we were pulling into the bay to get back on boat #1, they gave us a small glass of Pisco Sour, too. It was really nice. I'm glad they fed us because I was hungry. Anyway, after we got back on land, we headed back to Miraflroes and I took a short nap on the bus and since then, I have done nothing. Now, I REALLY have to start and finish my Ethnography paper and then maybe watch Dioses for the third time, so that I can watch that tomorrow. :) I hope you all had wonderful Saturdays. I can't believe my time here is winding down sooo fast! Soon enough, I will be back in Illinois/Wisconsin celebrathing Christmas. Yay!
So, I just had to take a break from writing this blog because my host mom hollered up to me saying that she needed my help. Guess what she needed? She needed me to make pickle roll-ups for her get-together she's having tonight! :) Haha, how fun is that? Anyway, now who knows if I'll get my paper done because I might have to join in on the fun! :)
Okay, now the usual vote for ILS! Please, vote! It's really not that hard nor does it take a lot of time out of your day! Thanks for the support!!
