Depending on your perspective, Oscar has been very lucky or very unlucky to spend his last two birthdays away from home, on another continent. (Last year Panama, this year Colombia.) Unlike some other members of our family, Oscar is a pretty low key guy who doesn’t need a lot of fanfare or is someone wants … More Happy Birthday Oscar!
Hi, it’s Sofia and Oscar! We decided to give Mama a break from all the blogging and tell you about the Gaston Acurio restaurants we have gone to. For those of you who don’t know who he is, he has 45 restaurants, mostly in Peru. He is Peru’s most famous chef. He and his wife, … More Gaston Acurio’s Restaurants
Hi, it’s Sofia and Oscar! Today we went with Mama to a crepe restaurant called Palachinke near the Parque Kennedy. We have been wanting to go here but it doesn’t open until 1pm for lunch (and Mama never wants to have crepes for lunch but today she let us because Daddy is traveling.) After school … More Crepes for Lunch
The sun was out again today! We didn’t intend for it happen (maybe it was meant to given the great weather) but the kids and I left the apartment at 845 a.m. with Sean to go to school and didn’t come back until 5 p.m. After class we ran a few errands. We had to … More The Electric Museum and a Visit to Barranco
Hi, it’s Oscar. Yesterday, I went to an Astrid y Gaston restaurant called La Barra. I wanted to go there because my dad told me that there was guinea pig on the menu. It is one of Peru’s prized possession. Nana and I were the only who wanted to eat guinea pig. As we were … More Yo comí cuy!
Hi, it’s Oscar. Today I played a baseball game. Daddy and I had to get there really early. My team is called the Pumas. I played short stop and second base. At the game we lost 5-4. But we played really well, tried hard and had fun. We played a team called the Dragons. The … More Pumas Baseball
We are very slowly…muy lentatmente (I had to look that up, by the way)…settling into a routine. Which so far seems to be: school, supermarket, a long walk that involves ice cream, relaxing after the walk, back to the apartment. It doesn’t sound like much but some how, so far, it seems to fill the … More The Routine, So Far
Today we took Oscar to his first baseball class at the Pumas Beisbol Club, a dedicated group of kids and coaches playing ball in the land of futbol. It was a true urban stadium in the middle of the La Victoria district but Oscar had a blast despite the language barrier. I don’t know how … More Baseball in Peru
Hi, it’s Oscar. The park is across from our apartment. It has a big space to play baseball and soccer. Also, any sport of your choice. The workout equipment is really fun. It is all outside. I have been playing ball with Daddy every morning at 630am, Peruvian time. There are lots of guys on … More The Park
Yesterday was our first full day in Peru and with it came the expected highs and lows of travel. The highs; being somewhere new, walking and exploring. The lows: being somewhere new, walking and exploring. We walked a total of eight miles. Sofia and Oscar were troopers and walked without (too many) complaints. The ice … More Sean Saves the Day!
