Today we are visiting the Cradle of the Potato.
Caren Banks is a travel legend in her own time. Born in Paris there is hardly a corner of earth she has not seen with her own eyes. In fact, I hardly leave my house without checking in with her.
In this edition of the Safaricast there will be secret underground tunnels, museums filled with a chronological display of sexual innuendo, food (because I can never help myself). How to not climb Machu Picchu in new boots with double socks – but look very good while you do it and catacombs filled with skeletons. A smidgeon of feminism and a blessing.
Honestly – if you are not utterly in love with Peru within the next hour you might need to book an appointment with your doctor to confirm you have a beating heart.
And our apologies to Yellowknife Canada.

A Hello from the Quechua Language.
Quechua is a Quechuan language with about 8 million people in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Argentina. Quechua was the language of the Inca empire which was destroyed by the Spanish in the 16th century. The Inca used a system of knotted strings known as quipu to send messages around their empire.
