Tomorrow in Peru my Country, we celebrate our independence, July 28th, another year, true.
For everyone their Country is the best, no matter the things are going on in there. We feel inconditional love for our heritage, our roots, our food, our language and our unique way to talk because even if in some cases we speak Spanish, we have certain words that means different things around South America.
I’m from a little town in Tarma-Peru, my Dad used to work in a bank , He never skip one day of work, he taught me about responsibility and effort. That part of Peru is the the Center of the country with his mointains and his lands where people also have farms and they spend time making sure the lands produce potatoes, corn, carrots and more.
Some of them have animal like cows, ducks, chicken, pigs, lambs.
There you can find the more tasty milk and chese you can imagen. Everything fresh of course. The traditional food is amazing, We have these dishes like Pachamanca, sopa de trigo, Tamakes, and for dessert alfajores, dulce de melocotones and more. I had the opportunity to live that life.
A few years later because my dad’s job we move to the forest a city call Pucallpa, it was a change for sure, same country but totally different, the food in there was at the beginning a little challenging because the names and the flavor. The Tacacho, The Juanes. The Carachama is a fish, so delicious with the plantains. The fruits because is the jungle are very Yummy, like the Cocona, Aguaje zapote.
There are more varieties but I will be writing a book.
I remembered making friends there and when the time came to almost finished hight school I went to live at the Capital of Peru, Lima.
