Week 10 – The Food Issue

Just arrived back in DC...Annelise helping me with the commentary on the food pictures...Most Korean food is pretty good, but the best pictures I really couldn't take as not to offend someone to take a picture of something they were eating I couldn't believe.

Back in 2012, before moving to Korea, we had a family trip to Machu Picchu and Cusco. Very impressive but not an easy place to get to (maybe that is why no one knew about it from the Western world until mid-1800's).   The trip in 2012 entailed a flight to Lima, transfer and second flight to...
