For those of you who missed my last post, I have just got back from an amazing weekend in Lima. It was a great weekend in many ways – the food was seriously good, I met some very knowledgeable (and nice) people and I played my small part in representing Rio as one of Latin America’s great cities.
After a weekend so densely packed with goodness, I hope you’ll forgive me if there is a distinctly Peruvian flavour to the next few posts – as someone who has been living in Rio for more than 3 years, I found the contrasts fascinating.
One of the most striking differences I noticed was in the faces of the people I met. The Mistura festival had brought together farmers and producers from all over Peru and I found myself marvelling at their wonderful faces. Here is a selection of my favourites.

So those were a few of my favourite shots of the people of rural Peru. But seeing as this is Eat Rio and not Eat Lima, I’ll finish off with on of my favourite Brazilian faces.
