Saturday Morning Coffee with Mr. Living in Peru


Dear readers,

The month of October is always crazy and I think it is my busiest month overall and this year has been no exception. Last week, I had a visitor from Mountain View in California, who after giving a few speeches spent a couple of days with me exploring the city of Lima.
We went all over and saw most of the things that those of us who live here can see every day, except for Mistura in Rimac and Casa Cor in La Molina.

Both are open this weekend and here are links to a few articles with slideshows, you might enjoy – the LAST CALL for Mistura!!!!!!!!

I also returned to the Gold Museum, which is located right next to Casa Cor. This museum has one of the largest collections of weapons. It is impressive and worth checking out. If you go to Casa Cor, ask for the special that includes a visit to the Gold Museum.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars! Peru is playing New Zealand next Saturday. Peru will be upside down and there will be parties all over the country. I hope you reserved your seat in front of the TV somewhere and are ready to support your favorite team.

Have a great weekend and see you in near future!
