Peru = Magic

I’m back! Remember how I was so worried that the trip might be one huge mistake? No mistakes were made. I didn’t mind getting up super early in the morning for the hikes. The climbs were tough, but absolutely worth the work. I came back hobbling like an old woman with 3 busted toes and I’d still go back and do it again. It was THAT amazing.

In Peru I drank many pisco sours:

And ate guinea pigs:

They honestly taste JUST like chicken, just with less meat. The crisped skin was like skin from roast pork, but thinner, so it was more crispy instead of crunchy. So overall it was like roast chicken with thin pork cracklings on top. Pretty darn good.

I ate through an AMAZING local market:

I saw some breath-taking scenery:

And climbed up to great heights:

And of course I saw Machu Picchu!

Truly stunning.

Obviously a very eventful and significant trip for me. I’d do it again in a heartbeat, injuries and all. Even if you don’t want to do the hike, you can take a train to see Machu Picchu from Cusco. Either way it’s absolutely worth seeing, and Cusco itself is so rich with culture and art that I could’ve spent a few extra days just immersing myself in everything it has to offer. Gracias, Peru. It was a magical time.

Otherwise, now that I’m back, I’ve got a TON of crocheting to do before Comic-Con! Hookers can’t seem to get a break. 🙂
