The Irony of Peru June 15, 2007

Peru makes me laugh!  Take for instance the crazy names of some of the restaurants in Huaraz… Pizza Bruno – for fine French cuisine (obviously) or The Old Spaghetti Factory – for Chinese (why not?).

When in town, we spend a lot of time Cafe Andino, a great place to chill out over a coffee and while away a few hours reading from their excellent selection of magazines and books.  Being a gringo haunt, the menu is in English, however none of the staff speak any English at all, so when you try to order anything on the menu in English, you are met with blank stares and have to try to translate your order into Spanish anyway.  Very amusing, and mostly beyond us – we are largely limited to coffee even when ravenously hungry.  Can anyone enlighten me por favor… what´s the Spanish word for “fajita”?
