A blog about my first mountaineering experience which taught me about the precarious nature of stones, the fragility of the human body (specifically ankles), and the power of the Peruvian Andes.
So you're in Peru but your waiter is speaking in English and the menu is gluten-free. Where can you find the REAL people? A Day-in-the-Life takes you into the heart of the Cuzco culture. Discover the world of small-trade bakeries, farm families, and, sadly, monetary poverty.
Cuzco isn't known for its food...yet! It's no exaggeration: almost every ingredient is by necessity organic. local, and fresh. The meals may not be complex and of course the ingredients may be limited, but the simple flavors are worth the experience in itself. If you love good simplicity, then take a look at this.
