The Inca Festival, Strange Soup and the caves of Huagapo

On our second day in Tarma, we were invited to an Inca Festival. Many students participated in this very cultural event.  They performed traditional dances and wore their cultural garments.  Afterwards, I asked one of the women what she was eating because it smelled pretty good.  We were offered some of the soup, a traditional Peruvian dish called patasca. They told us that it was made with corn, sheep and vegetables.  I’m not too sure what part of the sheep was in it, though. When we were done, the woman told me that I had to help them clean butter lettuce as payment! Later that day, we explored the caves of Huagapo.
