I had originally intended to write a post pre-departure, but instead I’m lying in my hostel re-charging, after a morning and early afternoon of romping around Lima, writing to tell you all I’m going to Peru.
It’s officially my first time in South America, and I’m loving it. The people are friendly and go along with your poor Spanish skills. The women tell you to put your cameras away because people will snatch them. Market vendors let you taste fruit you’ve never tried and tell you what to make with them. Amazing stuff, and it’s only the beginning.
Tomorrow, my fellow travelers and I are off to cusco to give a solid effort at acclimating before we start a 4day hike up to machu picchu. Wish us luck.
Oh yeah, pisco sours are amazing. I highly recommend them 🙂
Until next time…
