It’s as Peruvian as llamas, Machu Picchu, and ceviche and is a drink that many tourists visiting Peru fall in love with. It's the Pisco Sour.
I see it over and over again… a tourist arrives in Cusco and gazes in delight at the woman dressed in brightly colored native dress leading a llama. “Wow! Peru is magical! The people are so friendly! I never want to leave!”
When it comes to craftsmanship, Peru is particularly known for its weavings, especially in the Andes. With a culture that is so closely tied to raising llamas and alpacas, it stands to reason that weavings incorporating wool from these animals would be a staple, both for clothing as well as for decoration.
You may not realize it but Earth Day actually first came into being as far back as 1970. While that might seem a long time for modern societies that want quick fixes and magic bullets, when compared to the history of the Peruvian Andes, it’s practically a nanosecond.
Despite the fact that Peruvian cuisine has become more and more recognized in the world gastronomic scene, some of the best restaurants in Cusco offer international fare. While the local dishes are delicious, it’s well worth giving some of these tastes from other lands a try while you’re here.
