All-lingual

Last night I spent some time talking to an amazing couple in a somewhat similiar-to-ours multi-cultural relationship. Well, even more interesting was observing the dynamics of the bilingual aspect of their relationship. Both speak Spanish and English very well, and I’m guessing the husband also has a third language under his belt. As I started…

Day 9: Chance it

I love my days off. I love when I stay at home in my pajamas doing absolutely nothing, except for a big adventurous trip to Subway to eat lunch. I also love when I go out into the real world and enjoy the day while others are busy working. One of our favorite things to…

Day 6: Keep traditions

I’m rather forgetful. I wish I was different, that certain things sparked my memory or haunted my thoughts, but nothing sticks for too long. One of the things I’m particularly bad at is dates. I would forget my own birthday was coming if Facebook didn’t remind me of it. So of course, as life often…

Ingredients

Today my husband went through something I remember far too well myself. He cooked a few (delicious!) Peruvian dishes since we had a friend coming over for a Road to Morocco movie night. After the careful shopping, chopping and assembling, both the causa and mushroom ceviche were ready. When I arrived home from work I saw nothing…

5 de mayo

Let me just start out by saying, I know that 5 de mayo is not a huge celebration in Mexico. I realize that for the most part it’s an excuse used by most Americans to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas at discounted rates. I enjoyed it most when living in California, because there were…

Too… tired…

Too tired to type.46 hours of bus.3 16-hour days of work.Lots of walking/standing in heels.Here’s a picture of my life.

Getting deported

Ok, so maybe no one is deporting me yet. But I am getting sent out of the country. The time I was given on my visitor’s visa is up, and in order to continue my paperwork I have to renew my visa. In order to do that, I have to leave the country and come…

Perfect Timing

Sometimes I think I have the greatest friends around. Super kudos to Jeanfranco, who after reading my last blog post brought me a random and surprising present today. My very own baking timer! Now I won’t be burning any more muffins (although there might be an ulterior motive since this way he won’t have to eat burnt…

The Smell of Home

Today was rough. Well, ok, the last few days have been rough. We’ve had a few important events this week which has been demand time and energy out of many of us. I’ve been running around from 5am to 10pm (on a good day) and today unfortunately everyone else was just as stressed and irritable,…

Getting Fat

I know it’s not a good goal to want to get fat, but I will say the process is much more fun than dieting. Now, let me make myself clear, I have no specific desire to BE fat, but I plan on taking advantage of every culinary advantage to living in Peru. Peru is very…
