i wanted to share the remainder of our photos (and a video!) from our trip to peru!
most of these photos are from our time in lima. you can see the images and stories from our time in machu picchu HERE and cuzco HERE, and a visit to a great little shop that sells handmade goods to support local artisans HERE.
lima was especially incredible for me because i was able to share my love of dance with the sweetest children during the week. it really was a highlight for our entire family.
we’re so glad our friend jenner was able to come down for a few days to help capture some of our trip! because he was only there with us for a few days, we snagged some video here and there by ourselves during the rest of our trip, and he was able to compile everything for us in the video above! the music in the video is by handsome and gretyl.
and a few more photos!
getting to share my love of dance by teaching a couple of dance classes at a school in lima was seriously amazing. so many of them were such naturals! i hope a few of them were inspired by our time together and want to make dance a part of their lives in some way. a classmate of mine from juilliard was actually from peru, and she’s such a beautiful performer. we had the best time. (and just a footnote, we made sure to ask before taking photos and video and were given complete permission to do so and also to share it on my blog and social channels!)
it wasn’t this blanket, but there was a similar one i debated getting for maybe twenty minutes. i’m still regretting not getting it, but i didn’t have room in my carry-on to bring it back with me! i should have found a way to ship it. it was gorgeous.
such a beautiful shop in lima called cajamarca 219.
and our friend rob said we had to make sure we tried this sandwich shop called sangucheria la lucha. it was delicious! josh says they made some of the very best french fries he has ever eaten!
i posted a video on my instagram of conrad trying to play a quena flute! we got one for eleanor and samson and he’s still obsessed with taking theirs and trying to play, even a few weeks later. had i known, i would have gotten him one too! it just didn’t really feel like a baby thing at the time when we got them. haha!
besides josh and me getting super sick (i think it was something we ate) during our last few days there, we loved you peru! we really hope to visit you again someday.
