Mongol Rally

aGood morning folks I trust you had a mightily splendid weekend. Here is your weekly mix-up of Lima happenings. If it was compared to a sandwich, it’d be made of succulently delicious bread top-&-bottom, with a rather unsavoury filling (and not as in non-savoury=sweet)!

Morning folks I trust you had an awesome weekend and that this finds you in sterling form. Party time! The Nipper’s highlight of the week was Friday; a birthday party at the “Nido” (Spanish for “nest”, best translated as a crèche). She had made a card and bought a pressie for her friend Sammy, but… Continue Reading
