These two. It was Luna’s first time visiting a different country other than Peru and with the best partner in crime.

Being fluent in Spanglish, I appreciated all the bilingual signs.

The photos below are Sabe Rico, my favorite restaurant during our stay. We entered different areas of the building and it only seemed to get more and more beautiful. We ended up eating in a private hut where we ate and played with a maraca that was attached to the table.

We stayed at this beautiful Airbnb house that was 400 years old. I think I convinced the ghost  that visited me the first day that I was harmless and he/she let me sleep the rest of our stay. I already miss dancing with my girls there.
