Blood, Fur, and Guts: Life in the Peruvian Altiplano

“Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else’s dreams?”


“Blood squirts out and onto the squealing guinea pig, who is about to reach the same fate as his brother. The knife tugs at the skin and fur, eventually severing the neck. Two decapitated guinea pigs staring at me with vacant eyes. An unknowing sheep that my trekking partner purchased a few days back is about to receive the same treatment. I have definitely never seen my meals so up close and personal before, and I’m not so sure I want to make a habit out of this.”

Check out the post I wrote for a fellow traveler about a wonderful night I spent in the middle of the Andes!
