Local fire station here in Arequipa. I’m feeling safer already.

Arequipeña is the local beer here (see what they did with the name…tricky). 

Feliz Día de la Madre desde Peru! I wish all those moms out there a relaxing and stress-free day as those close to you acknowledge all of your hard work. 

After teaching an English class for 8 hours yesterday, I came to the realization that this is quite ineffective regardless of the fact that it might be the only class that works with some students schedule. Who are they kidding? 8 hours? I think San Pablo University should reevaluate the purpose of their English classes rather than cramming students into an absurdly long Saturday class because it’s convenient.
