I’ve had a lifelong dream of visiting Peru. In 2014, I made that dream a reality when one of my best friends from high school and I journeyed south to visit the country for two weeks, including Lima, Cusco and, of course, hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The trip was magical! One day in Lima, M. and I were exploring the downtown city streets when we turned onto the Plaze de Armas to find a parade of native Peruvian folk dancers making their way up the street, followed by almost exclusively Peruvian and South American tourists. Also their family members, for when the music finished, audiences members ran up to hug their loved ones.
