Photo Diary: Peru the Surreal, northern highlands edition.

Yesterday’s itinerary:

  • Soaked in the same hot springs where Atahualpa once bathed.
  • Sampled a local flavor of ice cream called Cajamarca Sky. (Which lies somewhere on the flavor continuum between FDC Blue No. 1 and pure sugar.)
  • Watched the clusterfuck of plastic surgery known as The Expendables while sitting amid a gaggle of teens who chuckled ‘si si si’ every time someone got blown up.
  • Joined a procession for one of Peru’s most venerated Christ figures.
  • Ended the night at a small peña, drinking chilcanos and belting out Peruvian waltzes under an omnipresent poster of Che until two in the morning.
