A kid from the community of Chahuaytire in Cuzco, Peru. Having a delicious soup made of Chuño, the sun dried potato Incas practiced to preserve potatoes during winter time. Chahuaytire is 50 minutes away from Pisac, a small town in Cuzco Valley, and they are known for their knitting skills. During lunch, everyday a community family cooks for the whole community, and so they keep taking turns. Food is mostly sun dried potatoes, potatoes, wheat, coca, and dried lamb meat.

Location: Chahuaytire, Pisac, Cuzco, Peru
