Laughter permeates the quiet tucked away cobble stone alley on the ancient streets of Ollantaytambo.

Yieber quips,

“I think people are drinking Chicha.”

He walks over to an unassuming door and smiles. A group of locals is gathered in an open courtyard chicharia at a woman’s house. She sits proudly underneath family photos, dried corn, ojotas pinned on the wall (tire sandals) and other fun heirlooms. Beside her is a huge qeros (the vat where they make and store chicha). We are cordially invited in. She pours us a couple cups of corn beer which requires two hands to hold. There’s a group of locals curiously watching us …two gringos and Yieber). There’s also an entertainment party of four drunk stooges mumbling all kinds of gibberish ranging from imitating Vladimir Putin to one saying he can drink a ton because his intestine is 25 meters long. The Jefa, or woman who runs the place has a cordial yet strong presence. She’s in charge and everyone knows it.

It’s my kinda scene. Such a fun place to stumble upon. I live for these experiences.

We hear cuys…guinea pigs in the room scrambling on the floor in the next room over. I ask the Jefa if she can show Lindsay them as Lindz has wanted to try eating this cute local delicacy. She happily takes us into the room and I ask for a photo. She quickly grabs two cuys from the floor and hold them proudly. Lindsay says they are so cute. The woman replies with a wry smile…’yes….and they are delicious!” We laughed joking about them for the next few minutes…Lindz decided to hold off on trying the cuy for now.

It's been quite some time that we traveled. So I'll be posting some old travel photos that I never got a chance to post.

Starting with Peru.
This was the road side chicharia that we stopped by on our way back from Machu Pichhu.
This quaint place had touched my heart deeply and I had photographed every corner of it.

Look for a place that has a long stick with a flag, that’s a Chicharia, a place to get corn beer.

Chicha (n.)- fermented corn beverage, best enjoyed with new friends in a Bolivian speakeasy #chicharia #livelikealocal

Water Kefir will be at the @lemontbarn today! So refreshing....Grape or Melon. ❤

Why water kefir?
Reminiscent of a gentle lemonade...and similar to its cultured beverage cousin - kombucha (yet milder and less acidic) - water kefir (or tibicos) is a traditional fermented drink. Like most fermented foods and beverages, water kefir is rich in beneficial bacteria and enzymes. People who don't loveeee kombucha often dig this milder...less zingy flavor profile.

Peru & the people (V): our guide took us to this local chicharia outside of cusco city.

If you see a “red flag” 🚩outside of a house, it means they are brewing and selling chicha beer. The lady greeted and served us the chicha. She then poured some for herself and drank with us...so cute! I only had one sip of the chicha since I am not used to the taste. #cusco #chicharia #experienced #peruvian #latergram #cheers🍻

The bar is open:) Local's chicheria in the Sacred Valley (the pots are filled with chicha a corn "beer" sometimes flavored with strawberries ;) #chicharia #chicha #sacredvalley #daydrinking
