Tuesday October 2 – Lima, Peru
We were awake fairly early, so took our time and eventually went for breakfast.  We were unsure of our departure time today (for the Horse Show), so waited to hear from Cathy before going out.  She let us know it would be noon, so we walked out through the park and to the Indian Market.  It was just opening, so we didn’t see much, but it was nice to be out in the city.  Back at the hotel we got the message that departure was changed to 11:30.  That still gave us time to be ready.  And what a grand time we had!  Claudia’s parents, Ruth and José and brother José met us with a small bus and we travelled well out of Lima to the south.  At Los Ficus Casa Hacienda we were greeted by the very lovely Alexandria who guided us through the garden ( 20-30 kinds of lettuce as well as herbs, all organic and used there and at the La Nautica Rosa).     Alexandria explained the phases of training of the Peruvian Paso Horses and we saw a horse at that stage “do its things”. Finally 6 fully-trained horses rode by the best charlanes showed how well-disciplined and graceful they are – they really dance!  A single rider and a woman in traditional dress did a dance together which was very beautiful and well done.  And next, we had a delicious meal at outdoor tables and all the time we were getting to know Ruth and José.  On the ride back to the hotel, we sand Canadian songs for their entertainment.  This was certainly one of the very best experiences of this trip.  We cannot thank Ruth and José enough for hosting us today.
