|At the airport! [:|
We finally boarded our plane hours later to head over to Panama before jumping onto a connecting flight to Lima, Peru. Both flights together were only nine hours long, but for whatever reason it seemed to have taken longer. However, I loved being on the plane though because I love long flights. With the Philippines being a 16-hour flight away from LA, most other flights aren’t so bad. Other than the cramped spaces and the scary flushing toilets, I love the experience of being on a plane. I love looking out the window and observing where I am, knowing that I am in a totally different world. I love the anticipation one goes through on the plane before they land at their destination. I love the little tickle in my stomach as the plane slowly descends, although I hate that feeling on rollercoasters.
Anyway, we arrived in Lima, Peru at 1pm. We went through immigration and got our stuff ready to go to the Bible Institute we are staying at. The airport was super nice, clean, and not crowded at all. The process of going through was so much easier than LAX or the international airport in the Philippines.
A few of the girls and I then rode with one of the pastors we will be working with to the Assemblies of God Bible Institute here, in Lima. We all met up and got our rooms in the dorm. Everyone so far has been so nice and generous to us! They’ve been asking if we’re okay and trying to learn a couple English words to try to communicate with us better, but we ourselves are trying to communicate with them.

We ate at this place called Roky’s that is known for their chicken. We all just ate rotisserie chicken for the first night because Fernando said that the ingredients and flavors used in other dishes are so strong that we’d get sick so we stuck to something simple. We had great fries and chicken, but I forgot to take a picture of it all! However, I did take a picture of my dessert, Peruvian Flan. It was so good but I couldn’t finish it because I was so full.
|Roky's--probably the best rotisserie chicken I've ever had.|
