If you read my article regarding my trip to Urubamba Market then you may remember my delicate incident after eating a strawberry. Well, thankfully there was a remedy, recommended by my landlady Qeta at Qusikoller, Ollantaytambo. Hierba Bueno literally means ‘Good Herb’. It had a minty taste, more like peppermint and it certainly revived me after my episode of diabolical-ria. It even looked soothing as I gazed into the cup. Qeta had a good supply of it growing in a little pot inside her door along with other useful herbs which come in handy for the making of tasty soups.
