Feria Nacional de Artesanía

August 12th, 2007

As we passed through Jesus María, a district in Lima, we stumbled across the National Fair of Artesania. Here all that is traditional in Peru’s many regions was on display. From alpaca wool and chicha from the Andes, woven baskets from the northern coasts or dishes from the amazon regions, it was all there.
The main attraction for me was of course the food. I ate an empanada de yuca, juane from Pucallpa and chicharón colorado from Huancayo. As we were eating, María de Jesús Rodríguez from TV Peru began filming her show Miski Takiy showcasing the modern interpretation of Andean clothes design and also the food.
