Tomorrow I begin the A to Z Blogging Challenge with a month of coffee tales of New York. But I have one last post from Peru, which is both a coffee story and a giveaway. After the excitement of Machu Picchu, our group returned to Cuzco and spent a wonderful day touring the city. One of our stops was the San Blas neighborhood, an area of many art and craft galleries. We paid a visit to the Meeting Place Café, where I very much enjoyed this photogenic and delicious cappuccino. It was as good as it appears.
After coffee I spent some time in the plaza next to the Church of San Blas -- known as Saint Blaise in English -- where there were a number of craftspeople selling things they made. I bought several items from this woman, and one of them I put aside for a giveaway in Buttercupland. The identity of the item is a surprise, but it is useful and it was made in Peru. The weaver was lovely and very gracious to my extremely basic Spanish. This is the easiest giveaway. Just leave a comment on this post any time before Sunday, April 10. I will announce the winner on a post on April 10.
This lovely courtyard of a ceramic studio was one of our stops in the neighborhood.
I'm getting ready for my month of coffee and I'm also looking forward to visiting a wide, wide world of bloggers. Coffee and new blog buddies -- what a fun month.
As ever, thanks for visiting and happy April!
