10th Annual National Mime Festival in Lima, Peru

Mime festival in Lima, PeruThey have been doing this for 1o years?!  I didn’t know these guys were that popular.  Does France know about this?  Maybe they are a silent investor? 🙂  Apparently there will be workshops and a few plays/performances.  They say all in Spanish, but they are mimes – how much “talking” will they be doing?  Is miming in Spanish any different than in English or French?

You will only find this in Lima…I don’t see people in Cusco or Iquitos really being into this.  Peru – never at a loss for surprising finds!

Why have I never seen this on the streets before?  Oh, right…probably because I live in Miraflores, which is “too good” for this sort of theater.  Or should I say “theatre”?  Must…get…there…but…trapped…in…a…box…HELP!

Make some extra $

So, I had the bright idea of making a little extra cash by selling some stuff from the States here in Lima.  It seems like people are so hungry to get products from the USA because they are either 1. Cheaper or 2. Not available here.

I talked to a friend here in Lima and he tole me lotions from Victoria’s Secret were very popular and since he is a gym guy, that the protein powders and pills were pretty popular (but expensive).  So when I went home for a visit, I stopped by Victoria’s Secret and stocked up on lotion and Vitamin Shoppe for some protein powder and weight loss pills that my friend mentioned were popular here.

Anyway, if anyone in Lima is interested in purchasing or knows anyone that would like, I have created a new Facebook Page: USA Shop which you can find at www.facebook.com/usa2peru

Here you will find pictures and prices of everything that I have now, and the next time I go home I will pick up more stuff and update the page as I have new stock.  If you have any questions, ask me here or on Facebook.
