NEVER BURP while in public place in Peru!
You probably have read this again and again in the Peru travel guides, but it's true --- Burping publicly is considered very offensive, disrespectful and rude when in Peru.
Here in USA, one of my colleagues burped and our Peruvian friend was quite annoyed.
I don't know the history behind this and I am not sure which is worse for them - burping or passing gas. But just to be on the safe side, try to avoid doing both in public areas. With that said, thank you!

Wiñay Wayna Orchid
This garden plant came from southern Brazil / northern Argentine, but naturalized in many regions in the world. It is related to the capers, but this former family is today considered to be part of the Brassicaceae

sometimes it's better not to know
The funny thing here is our new friends from the Inca Trail, Chris & Lisa from San Francisco, had told us about these great kebabs they had eaten in Cusco. They said they were tasty and really cheap. I asked them if they were the beef heart ones and they said, "no way," in disgust. I found some of their kebabs in Aguas Caliente as we waited for our train back to Cusco. They were cheap and very tasty as they had reported. Later, I found these same kebabs in La Paz but this time there was a sign advertising "articuchos," or baby beef heart shish kebab. They had been eating them all along....lol.
