Ica, Peru


Our journey into Ica was one of contrasts.  The area itself is very poor; dirt roads, painted walls, stray dogs and tuk tuks dominate the landscape.  But it is also home to some of the peruvian wineries and we visited one to learn about production in the region and get a glimpse into the process of making Pisco.  Donkeys and goats crossed our path on the way into a compound with security and high walls, and what laid behind was a gorgeous property with amazing food and drink.
