... here that we discovered our love for delicious Peruvian food, particularly ceviche (raw fish/prawns with chilli and lemon). They also have a strong multicultural food influence (we have eaten lots of crepes and some Turkish food!) which has been amazing.

In some areas they make them even thicker and that is where they erect their huts.
