Behind the name

My childhood street

Renata's great-aunts: Rosa, Emma, Olga, and Maura immigrated from Paiján, a civilization on the north coast of Peru, to Lima. After years of work, they managed to fulfill a long-awaited dream: owning a house. It became a play court, a family meeting point, a tailoring workshop, and, most importantly, a home. It was located on Cornelio Borda Street, next to the Museum of Peruvian Culture.
