Peru- Summer 2010
Wow - it's more than a year since my last post! I have about 4 drafts of posts I never published. Lesson: Keep 'em short and publish... just to keep the stream going.
But since last year, I've taken an amazing trip to Peru and had a varied and wonderful season of Noshwalks. I've been spending a lot of time recently building my Noshwalks Facebook page - please visit! - but neglecting my blog. So starting today, and over the next few days (and weeks?), I intend to add enough to the blog to make it a great destination!
You might wonder about my first choice of photos from Peru. Well, that's the first sight that caught my eye when I visited the wonderful San Pedro Market in Cuzco, the principal Andean city of Inca culture. The goal of my visit was, as I've done the past three years, to take a short break in one major place and get to know it as wellas possible within the constraints of time. Unlike my visits to Prague (2007), Antigua, Guatemala (2008) and Barcelona (2009), I didn't stay only in one place. This time I had a bit more time to visit, and so I arranged also to go to Machu Picchu (an absolute must for a first Peru visit), and I also built in 2 cooking classes. Starting with Antigua, my trips all have some sort of food theme.
I'm going to post this now. My next post will have lots of pictures!!
