Wait a minute, no Peruvian food in a Lima food festival? ... I thought this event was all about promoting our cusine. Anyways, I can't wait to see your reports on this event.

It took me by surprise at first too, until I figured out that by 'international' they meant food other than Peruvian...the Hotel Association wants to promote Lima as a culinary center and demonstrate that aside from great Peruvian food, there are also other types of cuisines available...
