Lima-based Peruvian-born, I live two blocks away from the Pacific Ocean. I'm a lawyer, lefty, short-sighted. I am able to read from right to left, as a mirror. I love Limean winter, yes, the winter. I like reading, watch good movies, getting letters (unfortunately outdated now), writing on my blog Seis de enero (January 6th) and sharing an ice cream all around the year (as long as it's not chocolate).
