Almost Dying in Lima, Peru
Traveling to the seven natural wonders of the world is high on my family's bucket list. We are spending a week and a half traveling through Peru but could definitely go way longer. Flying into Lima is a straight shoot from the Miami airport. Lima is a really cool city to walk around in to see markets, the main squares, and the world-class Huaca Pucallana Museum. The food in Lima is super interesting and they have some of the best chicken here! Oh, that reminds me - a very common dish in Peru is Guinea Pig. Crazy, right? Most restaurants have Guinea Pigs in the back of their kitchens waiting so they can be served in many different displays. My dad insists one night on getting it and Guinea Pig comes out with an apple in its mouth and we all don't like the taste. Tastes too rubbery for my liking but when in Peru.
One of the days traveling, my life flashed before my eyes. My sister and I take up riding tandem on a bike on our Food and Wine bike tour. We get separated from our family and tour guide and try to catch up by booking it to them at an intersection. With only seconds left to cross, a huge bus carrying guinea pigs slams on its brakes a foot away from us. Totally our fault and I can still hear the loud horn blaring at us. I am now haunted by guinea pigs. I definitely recommend the bike tour, just make sure you follow directions!
On our family trips, we always try to donate to others in need by contacting schools, orphanages, or hospitals beforehand. Sometimes we ship the supplies there or we bring it with us to hand out depending on their needs. We constantly bring soccer balls to play and give to locals after. If you scroll down to the gallery section, you can see the different communities and soccer games.
After spending some time in Lima, we head to Cusco for the majority of the trip and the motherland of Machu Picchu. It's such an incredible trip and highly recommend the hotels and restaurants we experience. Let me know if you have any questions as I am always available to help!
