Our days in Cajamarca went by very quickly. On our last day, Alvaro was still a bit sick but I managed to get him out of bed. After some chicken soup for breakfast, we walked to a hill that has a great view of the city. Then we headed back home for lunch. Alvaro was craving bistec a lo pobre (beef steak with rice, fried egg and fried plantain), and he got a healthier homemade version: the eggs were cooked with no fat, and the plantain was boiled.

We flew in the afternoon back to Lima. We had been invited for dinner to another aunty’s house. They served salad, chicken, potatoes, roast beef, rice, and arroz con leche for dessert. All very tasty and made with love. I liked the dessert a lot because it wasn’t too sweet and it had been cooked with orange peel.
