traditional peruvian style covers the streets of huaraz
about a 7-ish hour drive from lima lives the mountain town of huaraz, at 3,000 M [or 10,000 FT] above sea level. as the jumping off point for a ton of andean adventures [like the laguna 69 trek amongst many other multi-day treks and excursions], the town is a mix of backpackers, adventurers and peruvians. what blew me away most about this town, was the locals – this was the first time i truly felt the true peruvian/andean culture and could not get enough of the extraordinary people watching. if you're traveling through huaraz, be sure to check out: the street market in carhuaz [we accidentally stumbled upon this and were the ONLY tourists, it was the best], grab coffee and some zen at yoga cafe, try any of the soups upstairas in the mercado central and try the local beer from cervecerîa siera andina.
