Why do Mannequins need Nipples?

At the risk of offending some, here’s my question: why is every mannequin in Miraflores either smuggling raisins, or (in one case that I was too shy to photograph) having a “wardrobe malfunction?”

Storefront Mannequin Smuggling Raisins in Miraflores

I thought this was funny. I’d be embarrassed if this were my shop, but apparently Peruvian fashion-store owners aren’t worried about showing a little nip.

Besides being shocked by the storefront windows on May 17th, I met some surfers down by the beach and talked with them for a while. Here’s a relaxed photo of Herman surfing with excellent style:

Okay, on to some delicious foods you should try if in Peru. Ceviche (raw seafood marinated in lemon or lime juice) at Mama Olla’s (restaurant suggested by Tim, thanks man!):

Maracuja Pisco Sour at Mama Olla’s. I discovered the ingredient that froths up the Pisco Sour: egg whites!

Suave Crema de Lucuma dessert at Las Brujas de Cachiche. Whatever this orange-colored cream is, the flavor mixes better with dark chocolate than almost anything I’ve ever tasted. Fantastic! Anise liqueur in the background…

After all this, I boarded what would be the first of two flights to Hawaii. Strike that, three flights… I volunteered to lose a couple of hours for a $250 voucher when the flight was full. Let’s see what else tomorrow brings!

  1. You’re so funny! Smuggling raisins – love it!

    The food looks simply delicious :)

  2. Peruvians definitely know how to do food! :-)

    I always remember the South Park episode. Since they’re all kids, they can’t have a “Hooters” restaurant, so instead they have “Raisins” and there are waitress-girls called Raisins Girls. That show has no limits…

  3. A powerful share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little evaluation on this. And he the truth is bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If attainable, as you develop into experience, would you mind updating your weblog with extra details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog publish!
