Stopped at Paucartambo for a look around and to make a phone call. Found this neat older lady sitting out front of her house with corn/maize mixture ground and drying in the heavy air. At least the sun was shining! She was making Chicha! What a great experience seeing this stuff being made. After talking to her thru an interpreter, she said I could step into her kitchen and see the batch brewing on her table. I wasted no time in getting in and shooting a few images. Chicha is an amazing drink coming in several varieties and flavors as well as varying levels of alcohol level. I had been drinking this stuff since our first day in Peru and now I was seeing it being made up close and personal. I offered the lady some money for the time and photos; held out my hand with a bunch of coins. She took two coins, US value of about $0.15; I tried to give her a Sol worth about $0.30 but she was happy with the two smaller denominations. Have to love the locals in these little rain forest towns.
