Adventures in Peru ~ Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

Few places on earth are as spectacular as Machu Picchu.

In fact Machu Picchu recently gained it's status as one of the New World Wonders.

The place is truly incredible.

Can you imagine having a garden,

terraced Inca style?

or windows to track the sun and moon.  

The accuracy and precision with which each rock its carved and fit is amazing. 

What it must have been like to live in such an incredible place.

Truly a magical experience.

The Buffalo Restaurant and Bar ~ Idaho Springs

Buffalo Restaurant and Bar

Like most of the Downtown Buildings

in Idaho Springs,

the Buffalo Restaurant has a story to tell.
This town rich with history

doesn't disappoint.

So full of color and charm.

What do you think you'll find on the menu at the Buffalo Restaurant?

Nothing but the best.

Buffalo Burgers and Steaks.

Bet you didn't guess that one!

Adventures in Peru ~ Cuy


For us guinea pig is a furry little animal we sometimes keep as a pet.  Not so in South America, particularly Peru.  Peruvians eat it as a delicacy.  It's often served in honor of a birthday meal.  The last week we were there, the girls and I finally tried it.  Though I wouldn't say it's discusting... I'm not going to say it was good either.   The meat was very greasy and not a lot of taste.  The Alpaca we tried on another occasion was much, much better!

Adventures in Peru Choco Museo

Choco Museo

Chocolate!  Quite possibly my favorite food.

Love, Love, LOVE chocolate!

So of course you can see,

why I jumped at the chance to see how 

and where they grow and make chocolate.

The process is long, and difficult.

I never imagined that one fabulous tasting piece of goodness,

could take so much work.
