The Monastery Hotel:Cusco,Peru

Posted In Decor, Hotel, Travel.

I had heard from friends who visited Cusco that this was a special hotel and so it was. Any place that puts a blue ribbon around the bath may and the tub may is one with attention to detail. The rooms were filled with wonderful reproductions of religious art and the aura I those who had been before us infused the entire complex with a decided serenity; at least until 3am in the morning when fireworks began calling people to the cathedral to celebrate the latest festival. The food was superb with lots of quinoa which was to my liking. One of our Peruvian guides told me they use the cooked grain with apples in a blender to make a breakfast drink. I plan to try it when I get home. A nutritious and delicious meal. No wonder Peruvian cuisine is becoming so popular.
