It’s been almost a week since we got back home from our viaje relámpago to Perú, my home country. Saying good-bye to my family is always extremely difficult for me because I never know how long it’ll be before we see each other again. Coming back to the States is also difficult because life here is so different at so many levels. From the taste of the food to the meaning of time… Our trip back was hellish, to sayRead More ...

Our Trip to Perú: Experiencing Our Culture Firsthand

One week. That’s how long we’ve been here already. We’ve done so much, yet it feels like such a short time. Our trip back to my home is almost over. When I mentioned that I wasn’t sure how to start this post my husband promptly responded “with the food!” Because, yes, we’ve been eating like there is no tomorrow. Peruvian food is one of the things I miss the most and so we’ve been doing a lot of eating. MostRead More ...

Traveling to Perú to Embrace Our Heritage

I’m going home. Finally. It’s been three years since I was there last. It feels like a lot longer. The trip takes pretty much the whole day since there are no non-stops flights from Denver to Lima.

It’s finally here! My son’s passport just arrived in the mail which means we’re all set to go on our trip back home to Perú in 9 days!

I stopped to think about the unimaginable risks people — including thousands ofRead More ...

As some of you might know, I’m taking my family back home to Perú in a couple of weeks. I am ecstatic. Looking forward to eating tons of ceviche and helado de lucuma while hanging out with all the people I love so dearly. My family has yet to meet my son, Santiago, and I get to spend my birthday over there — something I haven’t done since I was a child. But one of the things I’m looking forwardRead More ...

Camila in Mexico

No better place to start 2011 for us than in tierra Azteca–México.  Last week I shared a post from our first weekend in México City and promised to share more, but fell short on that promise because my daughter got a severe cold and double ear infection and I got hit with the flu.  We had to take it easy for days and missed out on many of the sights we were looking forward to having Camila experience:  el ZócaloRead More ...

  There are certain words that are universal in meaning, no matter which language you speak. One of them is ‘Disney.’  Say ‘Disney’ or ‘Mickey Mouse’ to a child who speaks Spanish, German, Mandarin or any other language and her eyes will most likely light up. I know Camila has already developed a love for many things Disney, including fairies, the mouse and, now, Woody from Toy Story. She was ecstatic last week when we got invited to spend theRead More ...
