¿Siempre te has tenido envidia de las personas que hablan otros idiomas?

Y si estudias un nuevo idioma en un país donde se habla tal idioma, como en Perú, esto puede algo innovador, no solo para tu habilidades lingüísticas, sino también te puede abrir puertas y crear oportunidades que no tendrías si fueras monolingüe. (more…)

Peru’s delicous desserts

Before coming to Peru, I didn’t know much about Cusco and Peru other than Machu Picchu and a few other famous tourist destinations such as Lima, Nazca, Cusco…But  I definitely hadn’t heard of the booming Peruvian cuisine and of the incredible tasteful Peruvian desserts. To me, Peruvian kitchen was just rice, chicken and beans.  Shame on me. Now, after a few weeks in Peru learning Spanish in Cusco and living with a host family, I know better.  Peruvian cuisine is amazing and the country is full of great ‘postres’: Picarones, Mazamorra Morada with Arroz con Leche, and Champú de Guanabana,  just to name a few.

My personal favorite: Picarones

My personal favorite (at the moment) are the picarones. (more…)
