Darkest Peru

Recently returned from a week in Peru, which I absolutely loved. They eat guinea pigs there, which is troubling, but beyond that, what an amazing place. Just like all the pictures I’ve always seen. It’s so spectacular, and so humbling, to get to visit places like Machu Picchu, a true wonder of the world, and, as always, to experience that feeling I always feel when I travel, that sensation of really being alive. To go from being that kid growing up in the middle of nowhere, USA, reading about Peru in Paddington, and wondering if maybe, just maybe, I’d someday get to see it for myself. And how I have. What a thing. What a remarkable thing. And what a remarkable place.
