My entry for this week’s Travel Theme: Meeting Place.
I got a kick out of watching World Cup matches in Peru. I don’t speak Spanish. However- it seemed like all the sports networks generated so much analysis, commentary and chatter on every aspect of this international game. It sounded like they talked more about these matches than what I see and hear on American football.
Also, I had my fill of drama on the pitch. It was painful to watch Germany beat Team USA. It felt bizarre to cheer on Portugal, who helped us stay in the game.
More so-called “World Cups” spotted on our trip.
Silver cups inside Museo Larco.
The museum also has this amazing collection of ancient pottery pieces.
CUSCO, PERU – Travel buddies reunited! We hopped on a short flight to the Inca capital of Cusco.
A little bit of drama at Cusco’s airport. We couldn’t find our taxi driver from the hotel. Other drivers smelled an opportunity. Thanks to an Internet cafe inside the airport, we managed tracked down our driver.
