One thing I miss about living in CA is the diversity of cultures.
Food especially.
Peruvian food and Persian food are probably my two favorites.
This is a long shot but does anyone know of any Persian restaurants near RI. Boston is a bit far though.
I did find a Peruvian restaurant in Providence. I'll probably swing by tomorrow before class. Lomo Saltado here I come!

Feel free to state if there's any food you wish was locally available.
