Five Days of Vacation

by Pam
(Peru)


Last February my husband and me decided to visit our country, taking a few days of vacation, at the last moment my father in law joined with us, at the first time I was disappointed, because my father in law is a big man and require to have special attention, but thanks to God a cousin help us with him, and now I am

very thankfull, because in April he had a stroke and maybe this was his last travel.

We took the airplane together, we leave from Miami at 5 p.m. and we arrived to Lima at 10:50 p.m. My mother and my brother were waiting for us, we went to my parent's house and we were talking until 3 a.m. before go to bed.

The next day my mother prepared to us a delicious breakfast; the better thing in my country is the food and the hospitality, the bread recently made, the smell of the coffee, the cheese, the tamales,.. etc, and specially the kindness of my mother.

We started to call our friends, we meet with them, we visited some family and for the weekend we were invited to a beach house with another two couples, we had really a good time, remembering old times.

Last February my husband and I decided to visit our country, and take a few days off, for a vacation.

At the last moment, my father-in-law joined us. At the first moment, I was worried, because my father-in-law is a big man and requires special attention. Thank God one of my cousins helped us out with him. I am very thankful to my cousin, because having with his help, we were able to travel accompanied by with my father-in-law. Alsothat is perhaps the last time we can do so, because of my father health problems. In fact, last April he had a stroke.

We took the airplane together, we left from Miami at 5 p.m. and we arrived in Lima at 10:50 p.m. My mother and my brother were waiting for us. We went to my parent's house, and we were talking until 3 a.m, before going to bed.

The next day my mother prepared a delicious breakfast for us. Among the good things in my country are; the food, the hospitality, the freshly baked bread, the smell of the coffee, the cheese, the tamales, and especially the kindness of my mother.

We called to our friends abd we met withthem; we visited some relatives and during the weekend we were invited to a beach house, together with another two couples. We really had a good time, remembering old times the good old days.

We took the airplane together. We left Miami at 5 p.m. and arrived in Lima at 10:50 p.m. My mother and my brother were waiting for us (there). We went to my parent's house and were talking until 3 a.m. before going to bed.

The next day my mother prepared a delicious breakfast for us; the best things in my country are food and hospitality, recently made bread, the smell of coffee, cheese, tamales, and especially the kindness of my mother.
