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.
A pint of El Duque at the Barranco Beer Company.
Peruvian hot chocolate with almond milk at Green Point in Cusco.

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.
Del Prado Inn is next to this beautiful square: Plaza de Armas.
A coca sour also helped. Pisco-infused with coca leaves. I had my first one at Limo. The kitchen offered complimentary fries and sauces with our drinks. I also fell in love with that green mint sauce. It reminded me of an Indian mint chimchurri.
Finally, I fell for a tourist trap. I cooed at the baby llama. The llama mamas urged me to hold her. Mark snapped some photos. Then we had to pay the llama mamas. It started with a sole. Then they asked for five. Mark dragged me away before they raised the photo op price one more time.
