This post is intented for all that want to follow my journey to Perú through my thoughts in this blog but can't do it because they don't understand basque. I'm gonna do it in english, not spanish, it's time for my basque friends that don't feel confortable reading in basque to start learnign it, it's up to you if you preffer to do it in english. Well and this one goes specially for Beeda, that's my birthday present for you :-)
Well, I arrived to Piura (capital city of the region of the same name in the north of Perú) on 11th July and I was there for two days where I could meet people from the ornganización called CIPCA that was suporting the proyect I was suposed to be involved. Then after a 7 hours journey by car through almost intrasitable ways I arrived to Pacaipampa, my home for the next three months, a small town of about 1000 people in the mountains, declared a extreme poberty zone.
The first days were quite dificult to manage, I didn't know anybody and I wasn't sure about what to do. Hopefuly the people from the town hall was very amicable and I did friends very quickly. Then my work in here was somehow decided (because you can't never be sure about anything here), I'm intended to analyze the organization, internal relations and work of differentes areas of the town council. Then they asked me to develop a program to track all the documents that are created here. Finally I will scape to the landside form time to time so follow the proyects that are going on and encourage the inhabitants to continue working hard.
I knew already that I was coming to a place with lack of many conforts I'm used to and that's were I am, it seems I've travelled 100 yeras in time. But in the other hand the views here are espectacular, the weather is always sunny and is a perfect place to get in touch with another culture from wich I can learn many things. There is available a web page with my pictures on it in case you want to check them, the link is in a post somewhere bellow this one.
Now I'm back in Piura, this time the trip was horrible, I almost puked, now I'm OK but it's been 3-4 days that my stomach is a bit naughty.
That's all for now. I promise that it won't be my last post in english.
