On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the Closing Ceremonies of FestiUSIL at the site for the new campus in Pachacamac, just south of Lima by about 30 miles.

It is an absolutely beautiful small village with all sorts of open tiendas (sort of like a farmer’s market) that lined the main streets, open air family-style restaurants and Inca ruins. I wish I could’ve taken more pictures of the town, but there wasn’t enough time to do so. We will have to venture down there again soon so we can explore a little more.

We did eat at a fabulous restaurant, Paso Obligao, only because I saw them roasting some ribs on a wood fire grill as we drove by, and I proceeded to say, “Wow, that looks absolutely amazing.” Needless to say, that was all it took to convince the entire clan to stop there for lunch.
