“Leave us the data”

The “Misias but travelers” They have earned a place in the hearts of several Peruvians and those of us who know them. When they leave the country we miss them and they also miss everything here, especially the food, as we had already mentioned at the beginning of this article.

“A Peruvian since he was a child eats delicious food at home and when he grows up he seeks the same experience. We are used to things getting rich. When we are in another country we miss everything. In other parts of the world eating is not a pleasure, but is part of survival. Here (in Peru) we wait for lunch time to come.”

“Our subscribers always say they have the best huarique and that is obvious because the gastronomic offer is vast. Therefore, we always invite you to leave us the data. All Peruvians have a good huarique. Foreign visitors are shocked by the price. Eating in Peru is quite cheap”, conclude.

And how do they do it?

Although many of us envy his work, it is not easy at all and requires a lot of discipline. Fátima and Daniela pay for their trips with the profits from the Misia Shop, a space -which at the moment only works for delivery- where they sell products for travelers that they design themselves.

All the items are made in Peru and the misias test the prototypes on their longest trips. After strict quality control, they are put up for sale. “Although the prices are not the most mysterious, the products will accompany them until the end of the world”.
