Dave and I have barely managed to post any of our Peru pix to this blog yet (we will!). We like to do slide shows of our travels, but we can only fit a dozen or so people into our home, and end up having so many people who tell us after the fact that they wish they had been invited. So we’re really excited that Char has agreed to partner with us for our Peru slide show, featuring Peru’s national drink the pisco sour, and slides from our trip to the Cusco region of Peru, including Machu Picchu and a side trip to Lake Titicaca, next Wednesday Feb. 11th, 7-9 pm.
So here are a few photo highlights:
Pisco is a type of alcohol, made from grapes. It’s not a wine, though, it is distilled as alcohol rather than fermented like wine. The closest thing to compare it to would be an unwooded brandy. It can be drunk straight, or mixed with lime juice and sugar to make a pisco sour – Peru’s answer to Mexico’s margarita (although Peruvians would cringe to hear me put it that way). So please do come out to Char’s next Wednesday, to try a pisco sour and to have a look at some more of our Cusco pix! Admission is free!
