It has been far too long since I have thrown something out there about Peru; bad, bad Diplomonkey for focusing so, so much on Ecuador of late Okay, so here goes what I think I will start to call postcards from Peru. These are the snippets of the life experiences that I am enjoying during my Lima assignment.
Life in the Foreign Service has its ups and downs of course, but one of the greatest benefit of this career and the lifestyle that we choose, is the possibility to go out and see new and wonderful things. We also get to meet people around the world that we would likely never have any interaction with otherwise.
Culture shock: yes little Dorothy, it abounds when we go overseas on a new assignment. We also get to face it, ironically enough, when we also return home to the States. But still it is worthwhile to do this gig, the pictures speak for themselves.
Enjoy the photos; and next time you pick up some paprika, you will have hopefully a better notion from where it comes.
Cheers from Lima!
