Peru -part 1

As you know, I went on vacation to Peru. First we arrived in Lima airport, and I was so happy because my mommy master was there waiting for us! I jumped into her arms and gave her lots of kisses. We slept in Lima and left for the airport early the next morning to fly to Trujillo, my birthplace. I had such a great time there. I went to Huanchaco Beach several times. It is 15 minutes from the city. There are cool reed canoes called Caballitos de Totora, there from pre-Inca Mochica times, and the local fishermen still use them. I was happy to be back in the home of my master’s parents. I remembered everyone in the family, but there was a new member too. She is a boxer named Estrella (Star in Spanish). I think I mentioned her before. Well, I finally met her. She is going to be 2 years old this Friday. Estrella and I did not get along. She is very playful but she is so much bigger than me! I also think that she didn’t accept that I was in her territory, especially because sometimes I played with her toys. They had to keep us separated, even though we tried to play together a couple times. So I just continued with my regular routine and tried to ignore her. But she always kept an eye on me.
On my 10th birthday, I went to the beach and had so much fun. I played in the ocean and ran so much. We had lunch at a seaside restaurant, where I tried the grilled octopus that I told you about. Afterwards we went to walk on the pier.When I got home from the beach, I took a wonderful bath to get rid of all the sand and sea water. At night, my family surprised me with cake and ice cream and my gift. I think it was the best birthday ever!

Como ustedes saben, me fui de vacaciones a Perú. Arribamos al aeropuerto de Lima y estuve muy contenta por que mi mami master estuvo ahí esperándome! Salte a sus brazos y le di muchos besitos. Pasamos la noche en Lima y temprano por la mañana volamos a Trujillo, la ciudad donde nací. Pase buenos momentos ahí. Fuimos a la playa de Huanchaco varias veces. La playa esta a 15 minutos de la ciudad. Hay unas canoas que se llaman Caballitos de Totora, son de los tiempos pre-Incas, de los tiempos de la cultura Mochica; la gente aún lo usa para pescar.
Me emociono estar devuelta en la casa de los padres de mi master. Yo recordaba a toda la familia, pero había un nuevo miembro. Es una perrita boxer llamada Estrella. Creo que la mencione antes. Este viernes cumplirá 2 años de edad. Estrella y no nos llevamos muy bien. Ella es muy juguetona y a la vez es mas grande que yo! También creo que ella no acepto que este en su territorio, especialmente porque a veces yo jugaba con sus juguetes.
Nos tenían separadas, pero tratamos de jugar juntas un par de veces, pero no funciono. Yo continuaba con mi regular rutina y trataba de ignorarla. Pero ella siempre me vigilaba.
En mi décimo cumpleaños, yo fui a la playa y me divertí mucho. Me bañe en el mar, jugué y corrí mucho. Almorzamos en un restaurante en la playa, ahí fue donde probé pulpo a la parrilla, se acuerdan que le conté? Después fuimos a caminar por el muelle.Cuando regresamos de la playa a la casa, me tome un buen baño para quitarme la arena y el agua del mar. En la noche mi familia me sorprendió con una torta, helado y mi regalo. Creo que este ha sido el mejor cumpleaños que he tenido.

My Aunt Leslie crash-landed in Lima when she was paragliding over the city. Except for that part, she really liked it there. I'm glad you had such a good birthday. I'm going to lobby here for the same treatment!

Hi Girasol
What beautiful photos of you at the beach. We're so pleased you had such a pawsome Barkday. It's a shame you did not get on with Star. She sounds grumpy.
Love from Hammer

Good evening girasol.
The coast in Peru is water of a beautiful sea.
There is a wonderful birthday there.
It burns and it eats octopus's foot.
When it eats the lemon there putting it, it is delicious.
Wonderful time with memories of Peru. :)
