Pictures and Videos from Peru

Posted by on 2/16/2014 in Blog Updates under Pictures, Travel, Website Updates


Just added all the pictures and a couple videos from my trip to Peru.

You can see the galleries on my Peru trip page, but here are a few of the images I like the best...

I also added two new videos:

Cuy, better known as Guinea Pig here in the states, is a traditional Peruvian dish that is usually served on big holidays. My brother and I decided to give it a go on New Year's Eve when we were in Cuzco. We ordered two - one fried and the other broiled. They tasted a bit gamey (especially the broiled) but I must say I would definitely try it again!  If you're squemish about eating food that looks like animals, you might want to skip this video. Consider yourself warned!



The next video is from a small village we visited, where one of the craftsmen showed us how to make blowguns. He started by hollowing out a specific type of tree (similar to bamboo, but stronger) using a red-hot metal rod. Then he used a knive to whittle the darts. A puff of cotton glued to the end of the dart gave it some weight, and that's basically it. The bulb on the end is a gord that (traditionally) held the poison (sorry - didn't get any this trip!) We were even able to take them home with us!



I still have a few more videos to go through, so stay tuned for more uploads!

I've been to Canada MANY times, but never really documented my travels with any pictures.

 Between Brussels and Bruges, we sampled so many libations I needed a separate gallery just to hold all the pictures. Cheers!
