Travel Theme: World Cups

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.

The museum also has this amazing collection of ancient pottery pieces.

100 Happy Days: Inti Raymi

LIMA – So crowded in Cusco.

Thousands showed up for Inti Raymi, the Festival of the Sun.

Workers at a restaurant off the plaza let us watch the festival from the rooftop. I love this fantastic view of Plaza de Armas.

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.
