So we flew into Lima and landed around 1130 pm. Chris's friend, Keven, arranged to meet us and about 15 other folks at the airport with a bus to take us to our hotel in Miraflores, a suburb of Lima. Thank god he met us there. The airport itself is very sleek, modern, easy to navigate. As soon as you walk out of baggage claim, there are throngs of taxi drivers shouting at you and trying to get you to go with them. Everything is haggled over there. It's chaotic, overwhelming and exhausting.
We pushed our way through the crowd to our bus- very rustic, the floor was doused with a liquid that smelled like gasoline- and drove to our hotel. Miraflores is the ritzy part of Lima. That means that the streets are all paved and there aren't children begging on every corner and you can walk around after dark and still feel relatively safe. Early the next morning, Chris and I walked down to the market. A juice vendor was washing out his glasses in a bucket of gray water. There were buckets of animal parts in the doorways of a couple of small restaurants. Then I (wearing flipflops of course) stepped in a puddle of nasty water next to a bag that was leaking what looked like blood. Time to go back to the hotel and disinfect.
Back at the hotel, we met Antonio, the bride's bro in law. He was sweet enough to accompany C and I on our bus ride to Huancayo, where the wedding would be. We got to the bus station a little early. The bus got there about 1 1/2 hours late. Different time scale there. STill, Antonio was great. He spoke a little less English than I do Spanish, but we managed talked about family, 9/11 and GW.
Bus finally came and we stared the 7 hour ride through the mountains to Huancayo.

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean you're pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.
I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer. Your sense of humor takes the most effort to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.
Also, you probably loved the Office. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check it out here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/theoffice/.
