Last month I revealed a new feature that I am hoping to make regular here on the blog. I have asked friends and readers to share their travels with us and answer some questions. Last month, I featured Taryn's trip to Egypt. This month, I am happy to share with you Larry K's trip to Peru. As I did last month, I asked a few questions, here are Larry's responses and photos.
MSTG: What kind of animals did you see?
LARRY: We saw llamas, wild pigs and various birds.
MSTG: What do the houses look like?
LARRY: There were many kinds of houses: modern buildings in the cities, small houses made of wood or concrete in the rural areas.
MSTG: What type of transportation did you primarily use during your visit?
LARRY: We traveled in a minivan that was provided by the organizer of the trip. We were on a yoga tour of the Sacred Valley of Peru, and we stayed most of the time at a retreat center. We also took a train from the center to the town of Aguas Calientas, to get to Machu Picchu.

LARRY: We had many wonderful meals; at the retreat center we ate fantastic home-cooked Peruvian food, including excellent vegetable fritters, fresh salads and grains.
MSTG: Did you see any good live music?
LARRY: We didn't see any live music, but I did play guitar at the orphanage which is owned by the retreat center.

LARRY: Mostly, the children were in school, but we did see children in the market with their mothers.
