Joke of the week: What do you get if you stand between two llamas? *Answer is below the pictures.
By Phoenix Johnson
On the 11th of March, I went to Lima, Peru. I got to have an extra long spring break. My dad, sister and I took two planes to get to Lima. We had a 3 hour layover in Atlanta, Georgia. From start to finish, it took around fourteen hours to get to Lima, Peru. We landed in the nighttime and I noticed many buildings and lights.
There were many things to do in Lima. We spent around three hours at the beach. The waves were really big there. We went shopping at different markets and stores. I got a lot of stuff. We went to many different statues, a cool one was made by Victor Delfin. I also went swimming at the hotel pool.
We ate tons of tasty food. We went to a famous ceviche restaurant that Anthony Bourdain rated on his show, Parts Unknown. It was really tasty. We also went to the restaurant at the hotel. It was really good. They had a lot of fresh fish. The night we walked into the hotel, the lady gave us free tickets for milk and cookies. One night we ordered the cookies and milk. They tasted Yummy. They were Peruvian style cookies.
They have a lot of traditions in Peru. I'm going to name some of them. They like to make colorful llama stuffed animal toys that are sometimes fluffy. Then they sell them at stores. Another tradition is to have a nice festival to celebrate saints with people wearing bright colors and dancing. One other tradition is to offer payments to the earth.
Lima, Peru has a lot of architecture that is really cool. There are a lot of cool statues that are really big. There are a lot of pretty and big buildings in Peru. But there are also a lot of small broken down buildings and houses. Some of the buildings are weird shapes. While we were there, we went to see this really beautiful church. It was huge.
While I was in Lima, I spent three hours at the beach. I went to a famous ceviche restaurant. A tradition in Lima, Peru, is to offer payments to the Earth. I bought a lot of cool stuff while I was there. Lima, Peru has very cool architecture, some of the buildings are strange shapes. Some of the buildings are shaped like cylinders and cubes. All of my trip was very fun.
