Part five of a five-part series of ways to experience a little of Peru when you cannot be here. Today we look at the sense of smell.
What is the scent of Peru?
If you had to make a perfume that encapsulates Peru, what would you include?
Citrus and sea salt
Fresh lime, squeezed onto ceviche, as the sun bears falls into the Pacific once more.
Freshly turned earth, dotted by piles of newly excavated potatoes.
Hot moist air filled with the scent of plant matter breaking down, to continue the cycle of life.
Peru’s very own musk, as a smoky fire burns, in a low stone house, high in the hills.
