Viva PeruMarch 26, 2013
Wake up early and spin down to STT to catch the 9:00amflight to Miami. 4hr layover in MIA and then depart for Peru. Arrive in time for dinner at La Gloria , considered Lima’s best restaurant. Peru is home to our knit suppliers and we visit often.
We enjoy developing new styles, checking out samples, discovering fabric improvements and monitoring quality. Best of all Peru offers exquisite cuisine and each meal is a culinary feast. Lunch is usually ceviche, recognized as Peru’s best-known contribution to international cuisine. Dinners, which in true Latin style, are started late, are at restaurants like the aforementioned La Gloria, or at Osaka, the cities best Japanese restaurant.
Lima sprawls and a working day involves driving from factory to factory through the gritty working class Northern portion of the city in taxis. Meeting our suppliers and seeing our product being made is important and, for us, gratifying. Savoring Peru’s fantastic cuisine is a bonus!
