my reflection wraps and pulls me under healing waters to be bathed in breña
so as i was walking back from laguna 69 i started chatting to this american girl. she told me that she was in peru for 6 weeks, starting in lima, a month volunteering in huaraz and then a quick stop to huacachina before flying to the states. it was her first time here, and she was going to keep on travelling round the world, but had no plans to return to peru. i was surprised at her itinerary, i think she's the first person i've met on my trip who went to peru and decided not to see machu picchu. i mean of course people like different things, but i would have thought that machu picchu was as close to being objectively beautiful and wondrous as a tourist attraction can get. when i pressed her further on her reasons for missing this out she replied that she'd seen a photo so didn't feel the need to see it in person. i really hope that she was using some of that famous american irony as i don't even know where to start with an argument like that. she liked the laguna though - although if she had waited until i posted this she could have saved herself 50 soles.
