Lonely Planet Peru travel guide showed up yesterday and it's fantastic. Lots of great stuff on Cusco restaurants, kids activities, hiking the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu and more. Here are a few fun facts you may not already know...
1) Popular foods in Peru include Cuy (guinea pig, often served with the head still on it) and Anticucho (beef heart on a stick) which is served by street carts at night.
2) Cusco is actually at 11,000 feet high! In fact, Peru is home to the 2nd highest mountain range in the world.
3) Peru boasts the greatest number of butterfly species in the world.
4) Peru is host to the second largest portion of the Amazon rainforest (2nd to Brazil).
