Peru | Pachamanca In Huaraz

Peru | Pachamanca In Huaraz

It was Sunday lunchtime, and it had begun to drizzle as my landlady, Liliana and I walked to Jirón José Olaya. This small street transforms every Sunday to serve traditional Peruvian food - with gazebos sheltering the trestle tables and chairs on the road. You can also dine in the many restaurants serving the same dishes. It was the only street that remained standing during the 40s and 60s, and here you can take a glimpse of the old Huaraz, where the traditional green and white colour scheme of the houses remain.
