As we know, St. Valentine’s Day is the day of love. For many people it is a day they anxiously wait for. Other people see it as a day to get profits from their business. From any point of view Valentine’s Day affects everyone.
Romantically inclined men and women seek the perfect gift for this special day. From a red rose symbolizing love or a large, stuffed animal that is a large as their love, they seek something to make please their loved one. Both young people and older people run through the city’s streets for days beforehand seeking the right gift.
Shopping centers and the streets of the city’s center get congested from days before and on the day itself fill to overflowing. From street vendors selling roses, red balloons shaped like hearts, clothing stores, stores selling the latest in home electronics, stores with stuffed animals, etc. Our streets and stores cover themselves in red and love. St. Valentine’s Day also fills with phone calls, Facebook chats, and even special “good mornings” at breakfast.
In the morning they plan out how they want the day to go. For young and older women it is important to look good today. On the other hand men look into their wallet and remember all those restaurants with delicious food.
Maybe the day will not work out as they had planned. The most important thing is their desire to show their love to their special someones. It matters less that you give them expensive things, but rather that you show your love. Love is the most important thing.
Of course the details are very important. Once you find the perfect gift or need to figure out how to make this day the best you can, we can give you some opinions like a good restaurant to go to, a different kind of food that you can try, or where you can take your loved one to have fun. Cuzco has lots of variety, from excellent Chinese to Korean, Israeli, Arabic, Thai, and South Indian food, as well of lots of fine, traditional Peruvian offerings.
Since our Cuzco is large and has extraordinary places, what is better than strolling through the streets of the city and eating our typical, traditional foods. You might also like to stroll through the new shopping centers or even our mall, the Real Plaza where you can find fun and make the day one you will never forget.
