Living in Peru as a printed newspaper? YES!!!


As of this weekend, you can enjoy An Extra Shot,’ our monthly, English-language newspaper, available in all Starbucks cafes in Lima. Celebrate with us our 10th anniversary, and allow us to entertain you the next time you stop in for a coffee.

For my team and I this hot off the press edition has been a dream for a LONG time and finally, An Extra Shot’ became a reality. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I picked it up at the nearby Starbucks.

We know many of you don’t live in Lima, so we have also created a digital version with active links, which you can download directly from here to your iPad (e-pub) Kindle (.mobi) or laptop (pdf.) or any smartphone for that matter.

If you like what you see and wish to share this news magazine with your friends, please forward this mail and encourage them to become part of our Living in Peru community. More than 40,000 readers already receive our daily newsletter with tips, news and more…

It also gives me the great pleasure to announce the winner of our Cusco’ contest. Yesterday we found the winner – Ms. Allison Velazco, who will be visiting Sol y Luna in the Sacred Valley and traveling to Machu Picchu with Inca Rail with a guest of her choice. CONGRATULATIONS, ALLISON! I’m sure you’ll love it!Can it be, after 10 years Peru’s most popular English news portal will now be printed?
