I’ve wanted to see Peru since becoming enchanted with its botanical riches through the Amazon Herb Company many years ago, the early 2000s.
We are on a quick layover from LAX to Buenos Aires, so the previous picture is as much as I could see this trip from the ground. We flew over some buildings, some were colorful, none looked like they would hold up in a serious earthquake. Good thing the big ones are reserved for Chile.
The engines on the 767 are large and the wingtips curved to fly faster and quiter.
Inside the terminal are duty free shops, a ninos en la calle store selling local artifacts made by kids in the street.
Britt Peru was my favorite shop, with camisetas and sombreros, and an area in the back with gourmet foods, herbs, and spices.
Maca for Men, separately packaged and labeled Maca for Women, and a few other kinds of maca. Chia drinks in clear-sided cans with metal soda can tops. A few other whole dried herbs in very presentable packaging like horsetail (equisetum boliviana), valerian, and special powdered tea.
