Pozuzo in Peru – Wenn die Alpen auf die Anden treffen

Gibt es überhaupt noch einzigartige Reiseziele auf der Welt, die unberührt, authentisch und idyllisch sind? Was macht ein Reiseziel einzigartig? Und was ich in den peruanischen Tropen so alles vorfand, hätte ich mir zu Lebzeiten nicht erträumen können. Ich hatte die Gelegenheit, ein Reiseziel kennen lernen zu dürfen, das den Titel „einzigartig“ mehr als gerechtfertigt verdient hat. In Peru gibt es die einzige österreichisch-deutsche Kolonie der Welt und ich durfte sie mit meinen eigenen Augen sehen.

Ciao Peru – ¡Hasta la felicidad siempre!

Nunca tuve la oportunidad de escribir un texto profundo en español. Ahora hay una oportunidad y me gustaría alcanzar a todos mis amigos y conocidos que hice durante mis tiempos en Sudamérica para compartir algunas líneas. Tal vez por lo general no leen mis artículos, porque están en inglés. Quizás porque nunca hay suficiente tiempo libre en nuestras vidas estresantes para leer un artículo.
Para mí ya es un honor si continúas leyendo hasta aquí. Y si tiene unos minutos más de tiempo, me gustaría profundizar en mis pensamientos y recuerdos.

Is high priced Peruvian gourmet food really worth it?

You can eat even in the expensive Peruvian capital of Lima relatively cheap and you will still receive a good quantity and sufficient quality. That’s the case for every middle-class restaurant and especially every low-class diner. You get what you pay for. So what about dining at the upper class restaurants?

I made the self-experiment in the Barranco Bay area and had a charming companion.

Huajsapata: Un trago caliente endemico de Puno

The good thing about Peru is, that you can have it all. The Andean country has 90 different microclimates, including 30 of the 32 world climates, making it one of the most diverse countries in the world in microclimates. So what ever you want to see, be sure that Peru can offer it to you!

(Approximate reading time: 9 minutes)

Where old Colonial buildings and atmospheric bars project a bohemian neighborhood amongst all the graffitis, street musicians and artists.

Beach report no. 2 – Playa La Herradura (Lima, Peru)

I chose one beach that I already knew from my first visit in Lima in 2014. I visited the beach in April and it was a very quiet beach with almost no people there. No people means no one annoys you when you are laying lazy on your chair and try to take a nap. Reality looked different in 2018, but maybe it was because it is still holiday time in Peru. And holiday means a lot of families with a lot of children. But this time it weren’t the children who tried to catch the attention. Read the second beach report about Playa La Herradura and find out, who broke the peace.

Yummy Ceviche: Chilean, Ecuadorian or Peruvian style?

The South American cuisine has many things to offer for hungry stomachs, but the most tasty South American fish-dish is Ceviche. It has also regionally different names like Cebiche or Seviche. Although they wrote Ceviche with an S, it reads like a love letter to their own food. I had the luck to try so far the Peruvian, Chilean and Ecuadorian version of Ceviche. The Mexican one I didn’t try so far. But I would like to share and compare the other three ones I tried.
