Ladies and gentlemen, this week’s Beard Watch is brought to you on location from Machu Picchu (get excited!!!). On Friday (when we provide weekly beard updates), we were exploring the fascinating and majestic site of Machu Picchu in Peru, as part of our travels through South America.
I am growing to love the beard and not shaving for a few months. I do feel it suits me. However, since this is my first ‘serious’ beard, I can’t seem to stop playing with it… (e.g. petting it, smoothing it, brushing it, or picking at it).
The beard is very red/ginger and very soft. The only trimming I have done is around my mouth to keep it from tickling me; it also helps minimise the ‘flavor saver’ aspect of the beard while keeping it clean.
I have had one Peruvian person admire the beard and mention that he can’t grow one in the same way. Otherwise, not many men in South America have facial hair (except gringos).
