Lima Peru
Morning

In Latin America for work for 10 days, at the Colombian office at the moment, but fly to Lima Sunday for 3 days for a 2 hour Client meeting, anyone been or know anyone there who could give me an idea of what to do/where to go ? Probably the only time I will ever visit, so want to make the most of the 3 days and all Peru has to offer ! Cheers

A lot depends on how good your Spanish is or if you're in company. Peruvians are very proud of their country and culture - especially the food (and quite rightly). If you get any invites out then obviously take them as a local's the best to show you around. The old centre is lovely in parts but then you do a left and you're in some right shithole. Stick to Miraflores/San Isidro at night - it's touristy and expensive but if your on your own it's safer. I think Pizza Alley has lost a bit of it's seediness nowadays - it's just off Parque Kennedy in Miraflores - and is now only really good for eating pizza. Your more likely to get propositioned in the Parque. Best to ignore the Old Bill's clumsy attempts to sell you any gear. Barranco is nice and 'arty' with some good clubs and bars. Keep your wits about you and you'll be alright. As for the guinea pig (cuy) debate, it is one of the staples up in the mountains - a full Peruvian breakfast comes with half a 'cuy' on top, but you're are more likely to see Limenos tucking into cebiche (raw seafood marinated in limón and lime served with sweet potato and corn on the cob) but again it depends where you are. (So on that I'm no fucking help really!) Anticuchos are the way to go (beef kebabs). Pity you're not heading north 'cos the food's even better up here.

Not that different to eating rabbit. That used to be common here.

Not wild rats here no as they carry nasty infectious diseases.

Although with the right combination of spices...



Turan

Resorting to being patronising then? Well done.

Re: LIMA PERU
Been there, seen it, eaten it. Seen it served to and eaten by locals many times.

Guinea pig is more of an indigenous thing from the Andes.

Re: LIMA PERU
I'm certainly not daft cholo. You are free to believe what you want.

cholo 2:52 Fri Nov 28
Re: LIMA PERU
Don't be daft Turan. Guinea pig in poor rural areas of the andes is a staple and is sold in eateries throughout the region on a daily basis.

I've eaten it in lima too it isn't difficult to find.

Re: LIMA PERU
It isn't. Maybe once off in a blue moon for middle class families

Erm, it is, traditional food, but in the andes rather than the coast.

Turan 12:57 Fri Nov 28
Re: LIMA PERU
guinea pig is not really traditional peruvian food. more for the tourists

Re: LIMA PERU
Don't go there for food you can get on any English high street. Go there and eat guinea pig.

Cheers all, especially Gavros/Cholo, Pizza Alley seems a good place to start Sunday night.

Re: LIMA PERU
Lima is a great town. Visit the franciscan monastery in the old town and do the tour of the crypt. In fact just do a wander of the old town - its the best preserved one ive ever seen. Then theres the modern side of town leading upto the malecon where you can look aver the pacific while people parasail over the cliffs. And then go down pizza alley for a beer, a pizza and whatever else takes your fancy.

Whatever you do, eat as well and as often as you can. Peru has two distinct cuisines; the lowland seafood cerviche and the highland red meat based stews. Both are fucking superb. Massively underrated food place, Peru.
