In short, my favorite piece of creative advice from The White House, “You live in a ‘walled city’ that no one else has access to; only you have the key to open the door. It is your tour and your story to tell. Be transparent about your interactions and capture the true human moments of your experience.”
Well, now that I have paid rent three times in Lima I guess it is finally time to accept the move and share a little bit about my new life with all of ya’ll. In August I packed my bags, three suitcases, two giant market bags, a bench and a shelf to be exact, and left my a piece of my heart in the beautiful Northern Andes of Peru. I traded small town Contumaza, Cajamarca for the capital city of Lima.
Our training was from 8:30-5pm everyday and it was surprisingly really fun! The first half of the week we learned about small business consulting in Peru and then were given the task to meet with a business in Cajamarca for two days and conduct a diagnostic and then identify some areas of improvement and prepare a short workshop for the owners.
