    as far apart as

    They have offices as far apart as India and Peru.

    Does 'as far apart as' here mean 'as far away as' or does this sentense mean that their oversea offices are far apart?

    It means they have an office in India and Peru, special emphasis given to the great distance by a rhetorical device.
