That's awesome! I can see Polvos Azules in the left lens, and Villa El Salvador on the right. If you look closely, you can see a combi actually stopping to let a Peruvian hairless dog cross the street.



Great photo!

You wouldn't really think that's the Official poster right? you are linking a local homepage and that poster is only used in local movie theaters. Wake up! and face it, for Hollywood, Peru doesn't exist, and when It does, it ends up being a mess. (seen the latest Indiana Jones?)

Ok, I am confused. Why is there a combi, stopping to let a Peruvian hairless cross the street in New York City?

Ha ha ha ha...I didn't know they did that...anyway...I wasn't talking about Hollywood when I said Peru getting famous...I meant we are becoming known around the world as a country...when I was younger and lived in the US nobody even knew where Peru was and now that is changing really fast, with APEC, ALCUE, SUB 17 World CUP, Panamericanos, the Fairmont in Tumbes, the possible Trump Tower in Lima, etc...and yes..I saw Indiana Jones...Nazca in Cuzco with Mexican Piramids...OMG!!! I couldn't belive the ignorance.....and...I also think Indiana Jones looked too old to be runing around like that..hahahaha....

yeah, I figure if you can accept Indy running around like that at his advanced age, it wasn't too hard to overlook the rest of the discrepancies. :D

The last time that the Sub 17 was here I "ninja-d" :P 8) my way onto the field at the National Stadium to get my pic with Team USA.

Those young men expressed that they were very impressed with Peru when I asked them.

There are no discrepancies or errors in a fictional movie just like there are no aliens or multidimensional rooms in Perú nor a refrigerator that saves you from a direct nuclear explosion.
