about peru

Peruvian cuisine reflects local practices and ingredients—including influences from indigenous peoples and cuisines brough in with immigrants such as Spanish cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Italian cuisine, West African cuisine, and Japanese cuisine. Without the familiar ingredients from their home countries, immigrants modified their traditional cuisines by using ingredients available in Peru. The three traditional staples of Peruvian cuisine are corn, potatoes, and chili peppers. Staples brought by the Spanish include rice, wheat and meats (beef, pork and chicken). Many traditional foods—such as quinoa, kaniwa, some varieties of chili peppers, and several roots and tubers have increased in popularity in recent decades, reflecting a revival of interest in native Peruvian foods and culinary techniques. Now the peruvian cousin have a millions of followers around the world and win many awards and international competitions, such a: Gourmand Award 2006 (5 books of peruvian cousine), Gourmand World cook book 2009 and 2010 (5 books also, and one of them was considered The Best Book of the world about cousine), and finally, on the occasion of the Inter-American Year of Culture, on March 23, 2011, the OAS awarded the distinction to the cuisine of Peru as “Cultural Patrimony of the Americas for the World”. So, please, dont come to Perú and just eat KFC!!! XD

What was Uncle Monty’s trip to Peru really about?

Uncle Monty: the man, the fool, the legend.

Readers know him as the best guardian the Baudelaires ever had: caring, respectful and an endless source of knowledge. The last few days he spent with the Baudelaires are probably the only moments of genuine happiness in the entire series.

He’s also remembered as a hapless buffoon, too gullible to recognize how suspicious Gustav’s disappearance and how threatening his new assistant really were. The first sacrifice in a long line of casualties Olaf and the Baudelaires leave in their tracks.

“So don’t look so worried, bambini. As you can see, your Uncle Monty has the situation in hand.”
[The Reptile Room, Chapter Five]

But what if Monty were actually one of the most brillant masterminds of the series? Was the herpetologist, in contrast with Olaf’s machinations, running a conspiracy of his own?

Let’s try to establish a different scenario under the cut.

Finding Out: Jace

Follow up to I Will - Jace finds out that Alec’s engaged; with a dash of fluff and humor :).

Thank you for all the notes for Finding Out: Izzy!

Alec bit into his burger as he listened to Jace and Clary talk about Peru. Magnus sat beside him, one hand on his knee. He could feel the cold metal of the ring against his skin underneath his shirt and it made him smile absently.

Jace kicked him under the table. “What are you smiling about? I could have died.” Alec blinked and Magnus chuckled softly.

“Don’t be dramatic. The demon had no chance,” Clary reassured the group.

The younger couple was back in New York for a few days and the four of them were grabbing food at Taki’s.

“You know, you guys should come visit us in Peru,” Clary said as she twirled her fork in her spaghetti.

Magnus shook his head. “Can’t do. I’m not allowed back.”

“Oh God, what did you do?” Jace asked. He raised an eyebrow, as if readying himself for an absurd story.

Alec chuckled. He wouldn’t be far off.

“Well, definitely not the time for that story,” Magnus replied.

Alec looked shyly at his brother and girlfriend. “Actually, we have something to tell you.” He felt Magnus slip his hand into his and Alec smiled, shifting his gaze to Magnus. Alec squeezed his hand.

“You two are ridiculous,” Jace said, staring at them. “Can’t you tear your goggly eyes away from each other for one meal. I mean how often to you get to see me.”

Alec rolled his eyes. “Clary, how do you share the space with his ego?”

“It’s definitely a tight squeeze,” Clary said, smiling with laughter. “But enough about Jace’s ego, we mustn’t feed the beast. I want to hear your news.”

Magnus pulled their intertwined hands from under the table and placed them at the edge. The older man was rubbing his thump over Alec’s hand.

“Well, you see, Alec has achieved the impossible.”

“How can you achieve the impossible if it’s impossible?” Alec said, absently.

Magnus laughed. “All right, you achieved what I once thought was impossible.”

“What he’s trying to say,” Alec said, looking at Jace and Clary. “Is that we’re getting married.”

Magnus was beaming. He pulled their intertwined hands to his lips and kissed the back of Alec’s hand.

“Damn!” Jace said, a huge grin on his face. “You’re getting hitched!”

Alec nodded, blush tinting his cheeks.

“Oh my god, Alec, Magnus, I’m so happy!” Clary said. She got out of her seat and walked over the the boys’ side. Magnus stood up and Clary flung her arms around him. Jace stood up and pulled Alec up before hugging him.

“Congrats, man,” Jace said. They pulled apart and Jace gripped his shoulders. Before he could say anything, Clary shoved him aside so that she could wrap her arms around Alec. “Alec, you two are so perfect.”

Once they had all hugged each other and settled back in their seats, Jace ordered a round of wine.

Jace turned to his girlfriend, a cocky smile plastered on his face. “Looks like I won!”

“Won what?” Alec said.

Clary rolled her eyes. “Not the time, Jace!”

“What did he win?” Magnus repeated.

Jace looked at them, smiling sheepishly. “Well, we may have had a bet going.”

“A bet about us?” Alec asked, confused.

“We had a bet going about who would get engaged first…you guys or Aline and Helen,” Jace said nonchalantly. Clary blushed with embarrassment.

Alec stared at them, his mouth hanging open slightly.

Magnus laughed loudly. “Well, that’s a new one.”

“You placed bets? What is this? Some sort of gay betting ring?” Alec spluttered. “I don’t know how I feel about that!”

Clary blushed deeper. “It had nothing to do with you guys being gay!”

“Oh yeah, and yet you’re placing bets on the only gay couples you know!” Alec said, crossing his arms against his chest.

“Oh, get your panties out of a bunch, Alec,” Jace said, laughing. “It was between you four because you guys were the most settled with each other. I mean you two have been living together for four years and sickeningly in love and Aline went to Wrangel Island for Helen.”

“Honestly, Alec, it was totally harmless,” Clary said.

“I just want to know why you would bet against us, Clarissa,” Magnus interjected.

Clary sighed. “I can’t win, can I?”

“Well, apparently you didn’t,” Alec pointed out, feeling more relaxed about the weird bet.

“I just thought because you know, if you hadn’t been engaged in centuries…”

“Ye of little faith,” Magnus said lightly. He kissed Alec. “Like I said, Alec makes the impossible possible.”

Alec leaned into his fiancé, butterflies wrecking havoc in his stomach.

“I always had faith,” Jace said, clenching his hand to his heart with a dramatic flourish.

“I’m so glad,” Clary said.

“So, I get to throw the bachelor party, right?” Jace said, shoving a piece of steak into his mouth.

“Urgh, I don’t know about that,” Alec muttered.

“I mean, I am the best man. It’s my job. I’ll find a killer gay club. And we can play a game…how about, who’s the hottest. Person with the most numbers at the end of the night wins. I’m so winning, by the way.”

Alec glared at his younger brother. “First of all, you’re an ass. Second, why the hell would I try to get a bunch of numbers before my wedding?”

“And third, you’re not my bitch,” Jace finished, chuckling.

Alec rolled his eyes.

“Did I miss something?” Magnus asked.

Clary was laughing. “Just never ask Alec to cook a pie.”

A Series of Unfortunate Events Book 2 “The Reptile Room” aesthetic ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 “Starting first thing tomorrow morning, all of us must be here every day in preparation for the expedition to Peru. I will clear one of those tables for you, Violet, to work on the traps. Klaus, I expect you to read all of the books about Peru that I have, and make careful notes. And Sunny can sit on the floor and bite rope. We will work all day until suppertime, and after supper we will go to the movies. Are there any objections?” - Uncle Monty 

 Violet, Klaus and Sunny looked at each other and grinned. Any objections? The Baudelaire orphans had just been living with Count Olaf, who had made them chop wood and clean up after his drunken guests, while plotting to steal their fortune. Uncle Monty had just described a delightful way to spend one’s time and the children smile at him eagerly.

“The Emperors New Groove is important to me. As a Peruvian, my country is still in major poverty. Bad things are on the news everyday. It’s hard to find anything good about Peru, besides its amazing history. Kuzco and Yzma gave me the strength to stand up for myself, and overall the movie was amazing; it made me feel good about my country for once.”

“One of the most important characters in the legends of the Marinera has been the role played by El Chalan. Man and horse merge to make this incredible dance following the beats of music. Come and enjoy our Marinera and Peruvian music with Incas Legend!”

Almost a year ago I was on my way to the jungles of Peru, about to learn how … delicious.. palm weevil grubs really are. Feeling nostalgic tumbling through the Amazon Adventures tag – check out the playlist to reminisce with me.

On a similar note, Happy 4-year Anniversary, tumblr. <3 You’ve taken me all over the world on adventures I would have never conceived of otherwise. I’m so glad to bring you all along for the ride. My life has been so deeply enriched since I began this journey into natural history and every day I thank the cosmic unlikelihood for it all. 

The Muses Ride on Chiclayo, Lambayeque Perú.

The muses ride is 6 blocks from the main park and the reception gives us a huge portal, supported by four caryatids, five meters high, on which is inscribed the slogan “heroic city of Chiclayo” title awarded to the city, where the inhabitants defended patriotic interests during the Pacific War.

Following you can enjoy the harmonious distribution, a set of small squares, presented to the nine muses of Greek mythology, which were sculptural creations of artist Miguel Angel Diaz Diaz.
