Chicha de jora, Machu Picchu & high-altitude light-headedness
On the latest episode of “The Drinkable Globe” I go to Machu Picchu and Cusco, Peru in search of chicha de jora, the Incan fermented corn beverage—essentially the Americas’ first beer, long before the Europeans brought their own version. I apologize for my lethargy in this particular video. I was a little loopy and woozy from being about 11,000 feet above sea level.
