    We took a Peruvian cooking class, where we chopped vegetables, made flowers out of tomato peels and sliced avocados, potatoes and other Peruvian delights, then we cooked them, and ate them. Fast Fact: There are 3800 varieties of potatoes grown in Peru. And they all have names!

    We walked down towards the main square, Plaza de Armas, and on the main pedestrian street we came across Capriccio. The menu looked okay and they served proper coffee so we decided to give it ...
