The Peruvian people are friendly and welcoming. I was so excited to try out my Spanish because this was my first time in a Spanish speaking country. Looking back, Peruvian Spanish was so much easier to understand than Dominican Spanish.
My trip to Peru was an amazing experience that I will never forget. My only regret was eating the chicken that led to me having an awful bacterial infection. I was sick for weeks, and the effects lasted for months. Let's just say I will never eat any chicken from Peru again. My fear of getting another piece of infected chicken did not prevent me from trying a Peruvian chicken recipe, though. In my own kitchen I was able to make sure it was cooked thoroughly.
