  •   lfstewart It is homey, and just plain comfortable to be in @_nataliefay_. And yes, we'll definitely have to catch up once we're all back in the Bay at the same time! 2mon
  •   jeremybrooks Not sure if you're still there, but I recommend a cooking class if you have time. We did one that included a shopping trip through the markets, then cooking and learned a lot. 2mon
  •   lfstewart Oh, thanks @jeremybrooks, good to know! I'll have to see if I can squeeze one in... 2mon

lfstewart I have a mercado problem. Given the option of ancient ruins, museums, or tourist-filled churches, (unsurprisingly) I went for the local market every time.
I had fresh maracuja juice with a nun and sopa de cabeza in Cusco, and lomo saltado where all the guides were eating in Aguas Callientes; Ollantaytambo had the best local color in the rain, and the fish market here in Lima was hard to leave.
And with that #mercadomashup, I'm headed home.
