Finally, the brutal trade war that has for too long pitted the good people of Peru against their Icelandic brethren has come to an end. PeruThisWeek reports that effective Oct. 1, the quality goods of that sensible Nordic republic will be free and readily available on the streets of Lima. That makes this a good day for lovers of aluminum, ferrosilicon (?), fish and fish products (read: Iceland exports).
Peru is also considering similar agreements with India, Russia and South Africa. To that, I say sukriya, spasibo and thank you!
Psst… After the worst post drought in the history of Roving Reporter, I’ll have a lengthy history of Peru’s crazy transit system (or lack therof) early next week.
