Retreat, Rehearsals and Running

6 June 2012

Dear Friends, On 31st May at 10am I took part in a nationwide earthquake practice. This is a bit like a school fire drill but on a grand scale! At the time, I was in the main square in Barranco, the district in Lima where the A Rocha Peru office is based. It was fun […]

8 May 2012

Dear Friends, Winter is definitely on its way in Lima. It’s now much cooler and I find myself choosing to wear jeans and putting on a jumper in the evenings. I have been warned that by the end of next month my hot water bottle will be in full use. After a year of pretty […]

Christmas is coming!

5 December 2011

Well, we’re now on the countdown to Christmas day! The festive feeling is well underway here in Peru, our Christmas tree is up and shops full of Christmas goodies and Frosty the Snowman blaring out. I’m so used to Christmas being cold and dark, it feels rather odd to be preparing from for Christmas in […]
