I thought is was really cool that they owned a store that was part of their house - they had some food, candy, sodas, ice cream and other things. People could step into the little store from the street, but there were bars between the people and the store. Then there was a little opening and people could say what they wanted and then the family would get it for them and they would give them money through the opening
We went to a market, they had lots of stuff and we got movies for 2 soles each ( each sol is about 40 cents ) We got The Hobbit, The Croods, Hotel Transilvania, and Wreck it Ralph. They are in english and spanish. The one part of the market was fruit - they looked good and smelled good, but another part was meats and it smelled really gross. They were just cleaning up from selling in the morning. Chimbote is a port and a fishing town. We went over by the water to see all the boats out in the water.
We also got to meet a really special family that Kaylee taught and got baptized. They have two boys. They fed us some mangos and tea (we loved the mangos but not so much the herbal tea) they wanted to give us an ancient artifact that the dads grandfather had found but my dad had just read on the plane about how much trouble people can get in for trying to take things like that out of the country. So even though we felt bad -- we really couldn't accept their gift. Then the grandma found this donkey - and gave it to me.
After having another meal with Kaylee's pensionista's family and saying good bye, we had another long 2 1\2 bus ride back to Trujillo. It was a fun day, but a bit wierd that everyone greets you with a hug and kiss in the air by your cheek. I can tell everyone loves Kaylee and they are excited to know her family.
