In July 2014 we took off for 2 weeks in Cambodia and Myanmar (formerly Burma). This was our first time in Burma, but not Cambodia. You can see the other trips to Cambodia in 2002, 2007 and 2010 which cover the more standard tourist sights than we did on this trip. Please note; things are changing […]

I’m behind on blog posts. Like really, really, behind on writing about the wonderful places we’ve been in the last year. But I’d like to change that so I’m putting it out there, making it public, in the hopes I’ll be publicly shamed encouraged enough to finish in less time than it took me to write […]

On our last day in Lima we walked from the hotel to the Mercado de Surquillo at the corner of Avenida Paseo de la Republica and Narciso de la Colina. If you’re staying in Miraflores and enjoy wandering food markets this one is well worth the stop.     From the market we took a […]

Lima Dining; Alfresco, Maido and T’anta

March 4, 2015

Lima is quickly becoming one of the gastronomic capitals of the world. We only had a day and a half and I wanted to make it count. I’d done a lot of research on where to eat and I had big plans for a ceviche-a-thon. It all seemed to go out the window once we […]

We only had a day and a half on arrival to Lima from Cusco and we tried to make the most of it. But Lima is much larger than we expected and getting around isn’t that easy unless you rely on taxis, we we don’t really like. Lima reminds me a lot of Los Angeles, […]

We ate (and drank!) very well in Cusco. There’s no shortage of decent restaurants and bars, especially those catering to tourists. But don’t feel that you have to spend a ton of money; one of my favorite meals was in the Mercado and cost us all of about $2 for a giant bowl of chicken […]

We didn’t do too much sightseeing in Cusco. First, we only had about a day and a half in the city and second, I pretty much felt like I could not catch my breath the entire time we were there. I found myself really looking forward to getting back to sea level once we returned […]

If a town has a market, you know we’ll be there. On the morning of our second day in Cusco we got up fairly early and headed out toward the Mercado San Pedro, Cusco’s central market, where any and all manner of foodstuffs are sold. This is my kind of market; not only can you […]
