Culture and Festivals

A selection of interviews documenting the Alasita fair as lived by pacenos.



Name: Teresa Ticona de Pizarro
Age: 52
Occupation: Artisan selling toy cars

I have been an artisan at Alasita for 20 years. I keep coming back because I love the idea of buying for the desire of having. Unfortunately, I have to sleep in the stand because I'm scared that someone will break in and steal all my car models. I sell meat during the other times of the year. My favourite drink here is Batido.


Name: Andrea Vera
Age: 11
Occupation: Student, 6th grade

I have been coming to Alasita with my sister for 4 years. I love everything about the festival, especially the miniatures. I can't wait to buy bags and bags of money, and a suitcase for travel because it definitely works.


Name: Teodora Sillo
Age: 60
Occupation: Housewife

I love everything about Alasita. I've been coming for 10 years now and I don't plan on stopping. I'm going to buy a house and a car this year.


Name: Christian Quispe
Age: 18
Occupation: Student, 12th grade

This is my second year working at Alasita, but I have been taking part in the festival since I was a kid. I work the futbolín station because it was always my favourite game at Alasita. I may buy some miniatures this year, but I always spend money on the games so I get a lot of surprise prizes. I like the surprise prize carts because I got these wristbands from them.


Name: Fabricio Barrientos
Age: 20
Occupation: University Student - studying Engineering

I have been coming to Alasita ever since I can remember, but this year I am going to buy my university degree in Engineering and a license to practice. I really enjoy the miniatures and decided to make this model ship.


Name: Iba Delgado Arana
Age: 57
Occupation: Cook

Bx 15 29

My earilest memories of Alasita are from when I was 15 years old when I would come with my friends. Now I get to experience it every year because I come to cook. My specialty is Fritanga, and the mayor even awarded me a prize for this dish. I also love to make Plato Paceño, a festival trademark. I am going to buy some more kitchen items and some miniature food stuff because I love to cook.

Cara mengatasi anak ngompol bukan suatu hal yang mudah. Ngompol adalah kebiasaanВ  yang biasanya terjadi pada anak anda dan kadang membuat kerepotan mengatasinya. Masalah umum seperti ini menyerang anak-anak umur balita. Biasanya anak perempuan berhenti mengompolВ  usia 6 tahun sedangkan anak laki-laki pada usia 7 tahun.В  Akan tetapi mengompol ini akan semakin lebih mudah diatasi/dicegah jika orang tua dan anak bekerjasama denagn mengajar anak dengan cara yang baik diharapkan anda akan mampu mengatasi ngompol sang anak tanpa menimbulkan sifat yang rendah diri pada mereka.Faktor penyebab anak mengompol :Hal tersebut di karenakan keluarnya urin yang tertahan dalam kandungan kemih akibat adanya kontraksi pada otot kandung kemih. Anak Mengompol biasanya ketika seorang anak tengah tidur nyenyak dan terlelap. Pada saat tidur nyenyak, semua otot tubuh termasuk otot yang ada pada kandung kemih dalam kondisi istirahat. Maka sedikit saja terjadi pergerakan/kontraksi yang tidak terkontrol pada otot sang anak, maka ini akan menyebabkan urin keluar begitu saja tanpa disadari. <a href="http://mamaeka.com/cara-alami-mengatasi-anak-ngompol-sejak-dini/">Cara Alami Mengatasi Anak Ngompol Sejak Dini </a>
