Spent the morning catching up on stuff and doing running repairs such as seeing the rip in Hat's yoga pants and a button back on one of my shirts. Then we packed up all our stuff and placed it in left luggage for collection before this evening's overnight bus back to Nazca.
We strolled down to the main plaza, popping into trinket and souvenir shops along the way. Inevitably, some small pan pipes found their way into our day sack, along with a Peruvian costumed 'barbie' to replace the one Hat gave to the little girl in Uros. Initially it was named Bonita, but has subsequently become Jessica. I bought a hat as Ed's hat is really too small for my noggin.
We hoofed across town to find a traditional Peruvian restaurant that had been recommended. The kids were wilting by the time we found it. However, we did see quite a lot of streets that were off the tourist track and, therefore, we got a better insight into local life along with all the unusual smells coming from shops and street sellers. The restaurant lived up to its reputation. Coincidentally, Cas and Hat ordered the same dish and so did Ed and I. The boy's rack of ribs was a serious slice of sheepage.
A taxi back to our hotel was in order, where Ed found a samurai sword in a bush. He turns eleven tomorrow and the testosterone appears to be working its man magic...
