在秘魯首都利馬時，適逢甲組足球聯賽開鑼，看週末賽程表，首都有 4 隊球隊，2 隊主場作賽，分別是體育大學和士砵亭水晶，兩隊都是聯賽冠軍常客。
體育大學主場 Monumental Stadium 可容納 8 萬人，是南美洲最大的球場，門票由 20 到 80 索爾（約 50 至 200 港元）不等，但離巿中心 1 小時車程，黃昏時分開波，入黑散場，跟波迷逼巴士回家有點危險，因此選擇看在家附近打日波的士砵亭水晶。
士砵亭水晶主場只坐 2 萬人，票價更便宜，15 至 60 索爾（約 35 至 120 港元），只分區域不設劃位。我們怕買錯作客球隊區域，所以沒在網上購票，直接去到球場買。
現場只有龍門後面球迷區的 15 索爾票和教練席後的 60 索爾票出售，我們鎖定教練席後坐位，排隊之際，黃牛黨便前來搭訕。說是黃牛，但球場既不滿座，又不劃位，哪有炒貴票可能？一問之下，原來全是比原價便宜近半的贈券，我怕有假票，一貫先進場後付款政策。如我所料，多次被拒之後，終於找到賣真票的黃牛。
比賽一面倒由士砵亭水晶主導，半場經已領先 3 球，龍門後的球迷又唱又跳，半場休息也沒停下來。下半場主客各入 1 球，我們在完場前 10 分鐘決定提早離去，免得交通擠迫，最後賽果維持 4 比 1 ，士砵亭水晶勝出今季聯賽的第一場。
Oasis of Peru／Kimberlogic
Huacachina, Peru was not on my radar initially, but after hearing about it from a traveler we met in Ethiopia, I made sure to add it to our itinerary. We took a bus from Cusco to Ica, and found a tuk tuk to take us from Ica to Huacachina for the afternoon. The tuk tuk ride cost 5 Soles (less than 2 USD) and only took about ten minutes.
Huacachina is a tiny, little town built around an oasis with towering sand dunes in every direction. When we arrived, we were immediately satisfied that we decided to stay in Ica (an actual city) and just come here for the afternoon. Huacachina is a resort-party town. Everything is over-priced and of questionable quality. As we walked around haggling the price of a sunset dune buggy trip, we started to feel that this may have been an unnecessary stop on our itinerary. It was neat to see a lake in the middle of the desert, but knowing that since 2015, the lake is no longer natural and seeing the dirtiness of the water, over-priced restaurants and hearing all of the dune buggy tour touts we were a little underwhelmed.
We were soon proven wrong when our dune buggy first plunged down what felt like a complete vertical drop. I had no idea the dune buggy ride was going to be so intense. It was exactly like a rollercoaster without a track. It was even more scary because we had to trust our driver’s experience and ability as well as all of the other drivers on the dunes. At least with a rollercoaster you know they are checked for safety and maintained properly, and a lot these vehicles looked like they were falling apart. Although I was holding on for dear life and my eyes were closed most of the time, it was a thrilling experience and we had so much fun.
We barreled up and down the dunes at high speeds, screaming at every drop and sharp turn. Included in this tour was also the chance to sandboard down the dunes. Again, my expectations were completely wrong. I guess I expected a little beginner’s slope, but when I approached the top of the dune with my board, I felt like I just looked over the edge of a skyscraper. The dune was enormous and incredibly steep; I really debated about getting back on the rollercoaster instead of going down the mountain. I mustered up the courage, laid down and went zooming down head first. When I reached the bottom, my heart was just about pounding out of my chest.
After a bunch of runs on numerous sand dunes we had another rollercoaster ride to a place to watch the sunset. The giant waves of the sand dunes turned from golden to red just before getting dark. The oasis looked just how I always pictured it in my head to look like. The sunset view of the dessert and the oasis from above made the entire trip worth it, but the dune buggy and sandboarding were the cherry on top of this destination.
