I also found myself asking the question: "have we found any llamas yet?" I think that is only a question you would ever ask in Peru. We were in fact looking for llama charms to put on bracelets, rather than the real thing, just in case you were wondering if craft aid was planning on changing its stock to something a little more agricultural.
It has been a tiring, but very satisfying first day in Lima. We have another day of bead shopping ahead before we fly off to Arequipa.
One more thing before I sign off: In Peru, I have noticed that the practical and the spiritual are not always separated in the way they might be in the UK. In the shower this morning I noticed a label, which had the slogan of the shower company in Spanish, something like "quality that endures" and underneath the phrase "Dios es amor", which means God is love. That made me smile. 😊
