Saturday morning coffee with Mr. Living in Peru


Dear all,

Today is Pisco Sour Day, where we will not only be celebrating this amazing (and personal favorite) drink, but we’ll also be competing to see who among the foreigners living in Peru can prepare the best Pisco Sour. Join us this afternoon at the restaurant Caplina on Av. Santa Cruz 900 in Miraflores.

If you haven’t already confirmed for this party, don’t bother. Just drink at home, at the beach or wherever you are, as this event is completely booked! For years, we have done this competition, and it just keeps getting bigger.

Doors open at 4 p.m. and we have free Pisco Sours for all the confirmed participants (from 4 p.m.-4:30 p.m.), as well as a special 2×1 on Pisco Sours until 6 p.m.

Does it get any better? I doubt it! See you shortly!

Last Friday my new friend Juan Manuel Bermudez, who has made it his mission to promote Lima, asked me to participate in his latest video. I must admit, I was proud to participate, especially because the result was so nice. See it here.

If you like this video, please don’t hesitate to like and share it to help us promote Lima and THANK YOU!

Talking about videos, I wish I could make a video like “Sugar” by Maroon 5. The couples who got lucky in this video will never forget that special day, that I can promise you.

The educational video for today is Simon Sinek’s “If You Don’t Understand People, You Don’t Understand Business.”

In the past I’ve published other videos with Simon and day after day he is conquering the world with his wise words and insights on what it takes to become successful in life. I admire Simon for his simple, intelligent and kind way to explain what most of us need to know, if we want success in life. I learned a lot from all the video posted with him on YouTube. My favorite is still “Why” (watch here) which I’ve promoted before. Check it out and I’m sure you’ll understand “why.”

You can buy his book here:

It’s never easy to be President Donald Trump and this past week has been no exception. I really doubt he’ll last 90 days. Maybe I haven’t lived long enough to tell this, but I can’t recall any president being so unpopular from Day 1 in office.

Nevertheless it looks like he loves Peru


and he knows what to do in his spare time.


For the LIP readers out there who didn’t catch the Donald Trump details from this video, here you go again.

Have a great weekend!
