Hi Everyone - My wife and I and two friends are going to Lima and Cusco over Christmas and New Years. I know that there have been many posts about both of these cities, but many of them are quite old (maybe out-dated?).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - especially links to other posts you found particularly helpful or Peruvian Chow Hounders who really know their stuff.
Also, what are the dishes we absolutely shouldn't leave Peru without having? Is the guinea pig good? Are the heart skewers for real, or is that just tourist drek?
We prefer the hole-in-the-walls and the street food to the gourmet, but I am sure we will be feasting on both.
Thanks for your help
