Shoes on, empty tummy and friends to join! Open your eyes and let us welcome you to the streets of Cusco!
One hard boiled egg next to a baked potato topped with a green chile sauce… Yes please!
Our curiosity finally got to us after passing by this bucket mounted with what looked like a pile of compost. Turns out, they pour water over the goodies and let is seep through to create a tea. We each tried a sip from the warm recycled water bottle that it came in… none of us fought for the last drink.
This was simply a barrel of baked potatoes. You could a decent bag, warm and ready for less than $0.15.
Sopa, sopa, sopa!
Back into the markets…
Fresh juice smoothie anyone?
Sharing is caring as we continued to get one of everything that looked intriguing. Grab a bite and pass it around!
This little surprise treat was warm white rice mixed with sweet milk, layered with a mild fruit jelly like substance, all topped off with a saltine cracker.
On the way back we skimmed some of the non edible items that offered up hammocks, sweaters, jewelry, wallets, dishes, tattoos, and more.
Ann and I decided that instead of getting matching tattoos (enter sarcastic laugh here), that we would go with Peruvian friendship bracelets.
Sometimes it’s necessary to stop and remind yourself of where you are. We were all just chatting away before we glanced over at this beauty. Handstand time!
