Belisa is a feisty woman living in the city of Camaná, which is characterized by its beautiful beaches, agriculture, fisheries and especially the friendliness of its people. As a good Peruvian, she loves her food and one of the dishes she likes most is the delicious "chupe de camarones" (shrimp chowder). When she has a little time off she likes to dance, which helps her to relax when she feels worried or is in a bad mood.
