Wandering Lima’s colonial-era neighbourhoods in the centre this Sunday, surrounded by weekend throngs, I definitely felt at the head of a mighty country with vast hinterlands and a very palpable sense of the past.
Back in Canada after more than a year away and now on exchange in Peru.
In this last of my catch-up posts, I wanted to share with you some overview financial figures of my trip in Turkey and Iran last year and my nine months living in Sweden. Some of you might see this bookkeeping as obsessive and tedious, but once my tables are setup, I rarely spend more than 1 minute per day feeding the spreadsheet with the latest information.
Salam, chetori? Entering Iran was the realization of an old dream. It had long represented one of the most exotic places of my imagination, where ancient history, cultures, desert and spices coincided.
