Lonely Planet, keep me company.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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
What I know about Peru:

Pisco sour is the national drink.
Peruvians eat guinea pig and alpaca.
Potatoes came from Peru.
Machu Picchu is one of the seven wonders of the world.
The Inca civilization began in Cuzco.
Dollars are widely used in Peru (or at least Cuzco).
