Neil Tennant pasó por Lima

Neil Tennant en Lima

El frontman de Pet Shop Boys abre su diario personal para la revista británica The Spectator, recordando su paso por Perú en octubre último. Neil se sorprende, al parecer gratamente, por nuestro burocrático y primer-mundista sistema aduanero en el Jorge Chávez, y cómo no, por nuestra comida y los climas que la hacen posible:

Latin America has become ‘normal’. On our first tour there in 1994, in each country the promoter met us at the airport gate and whisked us straight into a car, customs formalities apparently nonexistent. Fifteen years later, getting into Peru or Mexico is no different from getting into the USA. I take this to be an encouraging sign of the development of their civil societies. Lima is a gastronomic capital. We were there for three days and every meal we ate was outstanding. Peru is blessed with high-quality ingredients and excellent chefs whose influences are both local and Asian. Apparently, there are 35 weather systems on the planet and Peru has 28 of them, hence its immense variety of food. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

PD. El aire acondicionado en los hoteles es todo un tema. Encontrar el interruptor para apagarlos es un must ni bien te instalas en la habitación, sobre todo si dormir bien, en silencio y medianamente abrigado es una de tus prioridades.
