Ambassador H.E. Miguel

Honorary Consul – Jorge Mario Pedro Vargas Llosa, 1st Marquis of Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas LlosaMaro Vargas llosa, in the end of his novel “La ciudad y los perros” (1963/1966) described one of the districts of Lima, Miraflores, which have some resemblance to Uzhupis in the process of gentrification.

Another interesting novella, taking place in Lima, is “The Bridge of St.Louis Rey” of Thornton Wilder. There, a catastrophic feeling and the bridge itself also reminds one of Uzhupis with its’ mythology of 9 bridges and the poetics of Ruins and unexpexted death (against which St.Christopher, patron of Vilnius, protects us) – T.Cz.
