One of the more unusual things I saw in Peru was the Peruvian Hairless dog. To foreigners they look like they have a crazy case of mange, but in fact they are highly prized pure bred dogs that you will see often as pets of the affluent. This one's name is Brujo and he's a little bit older now, which is why he has just a little bit hair. He lives in a beautiful shop in Lima called Las Pallas, which is an amazing store filled with unique Peruvian artisanal handicrafts that she travels to the most remote parts of the country to find.
The store is also the home of owner Mari Solari, an English woman who has been in Lima for decades and not only transformed her home but also her rough Barranco neighborhood into a beautiful, verdant destination for locals and tourists.
