Dinner Party and Running

A travel blog entry by augsabroad


... some sweet potatoes, and made an avocado/tomato/onion salad with lime juice. All of it was delicious and we were all equally hungry, so there were none of the dinner party politics of pretending that you don't want seconds to be polite to the other guests. Natalie and I prepared the pisco sours from scratch as well, which was really really fun (at least for me). We made simply syrup with sugar and water, hand squeezed and sifted the lime ...

We caught a taxi back to Cusco from Olantaytamo, which we split the costs with them. It was lovely chatting to them and made the journey go a lot quicker, as we were all still ...

... up in Arequipa that day. We made some ... stuff ... stuffed capsicums, a salad, some scallop potato thing that I'll never make at home - but the food was delicious and the market visit was also a nice opportunity to take photos minus the guilt.

The rafting was also great fun - class 3, 4 and 5 rapids with an optional plunge from a huge rock into a freezing cold Chili River. I don't think I realised how cold it was until I plunged into it. I kept reminding the Americans about ...
