Lima is no doubt one of the gastronomic capitals of the world. In my embracement of all life had to offer, I knew that I would be kicking myself the rest of my life if I didn't take at least one cooking class. A great plus is that you can have a cooking class combined with a market tour and I wasn't about to pass up that opportunity. So I signed up for both and soon found myself in the middle of Surquillo Market in Lima.
The Caiman's eyes almost seemed to glow more brilliantly than the flashlights we had brought along to navigate the river in the dark. I had just arrived at the lodge but traveling the entire day hadn't dampened the spirit of adventure one bit. When the guide assigned to me asked if I would like to go on a hunt for Caimans I responded "YES" enthusiastically. It was dark so we would be taking a motorized speedboat down a mosquito riddled river to search for the elusive Caiman.
