A book club I belong to recently read "Turn Right at Machu Picchu."
Author Mark Adams is an excellent writer who draws the reader in with him on his adventures.
The book teaches a lot about the history of Peru and its offerings, too.
One of the club members has a dear friend visiting from Peru and the two of them hosted book club members at Peru night.
Rosie served Pisco sours,with a liquor made from native cane sugar. They are similar to margaritas or whiskey sours except the glasses are rimmed with sugar instead of salt.
We also had purple corn pudding, dusted with cinnamon, a very unique dish.
The fried picarones, a kind of donut confection, were quite tasty, too, and came with a syrup made from fig leaves, cinnamon and molasses!
Examples of bright, colorful Peruvian clothing and a blanket, all pictured in this post, added to the atmosphere.
There were red and white balloons and streamers, too. Those are the colors of Peru.
The whole evening was a total delight.
