All over the country, residents visit cemeteries carrying floral crowns to "visit" their dead and clean their tombstones. Later, they share food and drink with the other residents. This ritual is part of a tradition that has been followed since the pre-Hispanic era. Those who have lost a child give children rolls and sweets in bags called "angelitos" (little angels). Through the night, families hold a vigil at the cemetery with candles until the dawn of the second day.
This anniversary is celebrated with civic displays and dance exhibitions on the streets of the city. A special event on 5 November represents the creation of the Inca empire.

Though the Peruvian population is small, a dozen or so high-profile Peruvian restaurants have exploded on the scene, with more on the way. Peru’s most famous chef, Gastón Acurio, is even looking to open a branch of his La Mar cevicheria in high-rent Mayfair.
Peruvian restaurants are now comfortably ensconced in neighborhoods throughout the city, tucked on quiet streets next to pubs in Shoreditch and among the galleries and theaters in the West End. Martin Morales, the Peruvian-born former head of Disney Music and iTunes Pan Europe, began tweeting about Peruvian food, then opened a Peruvian pop-up restaurant, Ceviche. “I was frustrated because no one knew this food or the ingredients, so I started cooking it at home,” Mr. Morales said. “Everything happened organically. A tweet here. A tweet there. Then the pop-ups.”

No longer just a stoper on the way to Machu Picchu, Peru´s historic capital, Lima, is having a moment as well, and the recent expansion of the Jorge Chávez Internationa Airport is expected to double tourism in the next year.
