There is a trend happening in Lima the capital of Peru: young peruvians are taking to Chinese culture. Young peruvians working at upscale hotels greet chinese guests in Mandarin with accurate Mandarin pronunciation. The interesting fact is that these young people have not visit China yet. They are learning China's language and culture through films.
