An Afro-Peruvian Night

Through the colonial era and up until de 1960s the Afro-Peruvian population, descendants of Africans that were brought to work on cotton and sugar plantations, was a very visible group in Lima. They used to live in and around the areas of Barrios Altos and Rímac and which are considered the birthplace of creole (criollo) culture.

Day 8
Cusco, Peru
El Mercado Breakfast, Lunch

Go back to school with the children from Amantani as your teachers.

At 12:30 your guide and transport will pick you up for your afternoon adventure. The drive from Cusco to Ccorca will take you through 45mins of some of the best scenery that the Andes of Cusco has to offer. Keep an eye out for an exceptional view of Apu Mama Simona. At an altitude of 5,200m this local mountain deity, according to Andean mythology is said to be the mother of all the mountains in the Andes. You will also get the chance to see one of the best preserved stretches of the Q’apac Nan; a network of Inca paths which spans over 40,000km throughout the Andes, from the northern tip in Colombia to the southernmost point in Santiago de Chile. Stop for a gourmet picnic lunch in route and enjoy the local delights surrounded by nature at its best. When you arrive at Amantani’s Boarding Houses, you will be greeted by the children and the Boarding House team who will show you around the facility.

A huge part of Amantani’s work is to help the children take pride of their Quechua heritage. Your visit provides a unique opportunity for children to teach their skills to a whole new set of pupils! Dying wool with natural dyes, creating remedies from medicinal plants or cooking Sanku (The Bread of the Incas); these are the kind of skills you probably didn’t learn at school! For Amantani’s children, this is just part of their day-to-day existence, a lifestyle which is all too often marginalized by Peru’s mainstream society. Remember - the more you learn, the prouder the children will feel of their Quechua roots. The duration of the experience varies from 2-3hrs depending on the activity available how long you wish to spend there.

We found the team of Judi Glass/McCabe World Travel (in the U.S.) and Empire Peru to be first class. They were knowledgeable, organized, responsive and provided excellent communication throughout the process. We worked together on options that fit our varied interests and budget. Weeks prior to our departure, they sent a detailed itinerary complete with descriptions of our excursions as well as recommendations for restaurant, shopping and points of interest in every city we were visiting. The daily guides were exceptional and provided great insight and information to each of our adventures AND...they were quick to satisfy our every need. Our accommodations were unique and we felt we received a lot of value for our investment. If you are planning a trip to Peru, we would highly recommend Judi Glass at McCabe World Travel/Empire Peru. Thanks again for the wonderful memories!
