I couldn’t sleep on our first night in Cusco. Sure, I was excited about visiting Machu Picchu the next day.
Our lobby clerk at Del Prado Inn gave us a cup of coca tea when we checked in. She also recommended eating a light meal with soup.
The tea helped. My head felt like it was back on my body.
Mussel soup also helped. We found Limo next to our hotel off Plaza de Armas.
Limo also introduced me to Coca Sours. They’re made with coca-infused pisco. These cocktails kept the headaches away.
Still, I wanted to take back some coca tea to the States. I couldn’t find any when we went back to Lima.
