One Bar in Lima

Last night, Oliver and I decided to go out to a bar in Miraflores just to see what it is like there.  We found a place called Bum Brazil, about a 15 minute walk from the hotel.  There was some great live music playing.  The three-man band had a ukulele, a cajón, and a tambourine.  They were all singing in harmony too.  This is, in my humble opinion, so much better than the music in bars at home.  However, hardly anyone was dancing.  There were just two women in the middle of the floor, and they knew exactly what they were doing (I think they worked for the bar).  No one was willing to step up and dance, either.  After a short while, it became frustrating.  No one was dancing, but the band was so loud that it was hard to have a conversation.  The women who were dancing were so good that just about everyone in the bar was recording them on their phones.  When I tried to walk to the bar to order a drink, I got a dirty look from everyone because I ruined their video.  Maybe the polite thing to do is wait until the song is over.  Oliver and I started talking to some people, but the frustrating thing was, it was almost too loud to hear them.  If no one is dancing and it’s too loud to talk, what’s a man to do?
