Mistura 2013 -  The Overview Map of the Venue

The organizers of this year's Mistura started a recycling campaign. As Peru is still in the early stages of environment protection and recycling, please support the campaign and set a good example. Don't litter, but use the different colored trash bins (green for plastics, yellow for glass and cans, red for organic residues and mixed waste) that are spread throughout the fairground.
