PERU MISTURA: September 2014 (click for more info)

3960285743_9c63283741_m
The unique trip is designed by anthropologist Charlie Strader, President of Explorations. His love and appreciation of Peru’s cultures and food diversity started with travels there in the 1980’s. Having traveled throughout Peru, he wanted to plan a special cultural, natural history, and food-focused itinerary that also included the incredible gastronomy fair in Lima, called Mistura! During cultural adventure, resident guides introduce the cultures of Peru, their environment, history, art and foods. You will experience why National Geographic named Peru the "next Foodie Frontier" in their Best of the World for 2012.
