Sacred Happy Hour

The Sacred Valley just outside of Cusco is great to explore, either for a day trip, or a short getaway. After exploring some ancient ruins and window shopping around the plaza, I recommend finding some outdoor seating along it's perimeter and enjoy a local beverage. This is my favorite way to take in the culture - no agenda, people watching, and occasionally chatting with the locals and other travelers. (Peruvians are always a pleasure to strike up a conversation with, even with the language barriers.)

I've certainly enjoyed my share of Cusquenas... possibly even at that same cafe! Whether we're in Latin America, Asia, or Europe, my wife jokes that my agenda is always the same: find the nearest cafe and *hang out*. I can't disagree.


Sounds like we'd travel well together. :)
