"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Pic of the day
Face to face with my dinner, a deep fried guinea pig. They are called cuy in Peru and are widely eaten everywhere. We once walked through a street fair with about 50 booths, all with several cooked cuy front and center on display to lure in passerby's. We went to a nice restaurant for ours (David ate alpaca but it wasn't much of a photo op), although I bet the street fair ones would have tasted better. Being deep fried, I can't comment much on taste, it was very greasy and had the consistency of chicken. Not good, but not bad either. It's the teeth that get me though.
If you ask me where I´m from, it will take me about five minutes to answer. Currently wandering around Central America with my partner and my backpack. My biggest worry is wondering if we will actually make it to Machu Picchu this trip or not.
