We're back in Peru for 5 weeks holiday! When I first started this blog in 2004, I wrote the profile entry below*. 4 years on, we are based in Wimbledon, London and approaching our 4th anniversary already! It's amazing to get back to Peru... and get some sun, sand and cebiche! *Although I’ve always been interested in International Affairs, I never expected I’d move to Peru to be with a man who doesn’t speak English. Nor did I anticipate I’d fall in love with a Spanish speaker whilst I was living in Japan. Especially since I couldn’t speak Spanish. But that’s where Japanese (albeit not particularly known as a language of love) came in rather handy. Well, not just handy, but apparently also effective, as it got us through the relationship eventualities of recollections of previous debauched behaviour, sharing toothbrushes, moving in together, exchanging CD collections, and getting engaged, followed by six months of separation and tearful North Yorkshire to South Tochigi phonecalls, to where we are today. Which is, to be precise, the city of Chiclayo, on the arid northern desert coastline of Peru.
