About the author (2010)

Born of a Peruvian father from Chiclayo (an area - FYI - that has a reputation for producing very fierce people), Carolina has spent her life making regular sojourns to Peru to kiss her aunts, wrestle her cousins and eat as much ceviche as is humanly possible. When not experimenting with pisco sour ratios (three parts pisco, one part lime juice, simple syrup to taste), she makes her living as a freelance writer in New York City. She has contributed stories to Time, Budget Travel, Travel + Leisure and public radio station WNYC - and is the author of the uncouth and saucy arts blog C-Monster.net.
