Fast food nation.
An ugly building called Centro commercial, has typical services like banks, cashmachines, tourist information and in the heart the thing that everybody is here for... Fastfood.
In the street around it you can find all ingredients from all over the country. Coconut, exotic fruits and ofcourse the traditionally home-made meals with super fresh and good nutritions, that are very tasty and affordabel But... What seems to be most desireable to Limaneans is the crapfood from KFC, Pizzahut and more... To us this is so hard to understand. It feels like a habit to deny the own core. Very important is conveniece and the appearence of another reality. We observe and try to understand a cultural identity of people living in Peru. Somehow everything foreign has the aura of Wealth, capital and succes. Somehow it is that image of succesfull living that makes people come here, certainly NOT the food.
