San Pedro Market - Cusco
This place flashes all your senses. Certainly. Just a few meter away from the main plaza this market until today managed to stay authentic. All the needs, from beauty, food, clothing and even witchcraft accessories can be covered in this halls. Taste all tropical fruits of the close by rain forests within a mouth full of a tropical juice cocktail, freshly prepared for you. You can buy a pigs head for your sunday lunch, or maybe, some lama fetus to dig it beneath the front door of your house, to keep away evil spirits. Buy cereals for your dishes at home, or get your stomach fed at the plenty benches of the local kitchens. No matter what you do in this busy place: better you are build robustly. What you hear, what you smell, what you see and what you eat may not be easy to digest.
Two things besides: Be careful – pick pocketers try to make their luck, especially in the streets besides the market halls. Secondly, this wonderful footprint of andean culture is constantly threatened to be removed, it is considered to be in the way for civilization.... I hope it is allowed to stay for a further while of many, many years!
