super reliable maid

She is 44 years old, single mom and lives in Pamplona alta so a household in
Chacarilla,Monterico or La Molina would be perfect.
She speaks only Spanish though.

Re: Pedestrian Fly Over Parque Maria Reiche, will it EVER be completed?

It's like here in Santiago de Surco... They ripped open Toma's Marzano,one of the most frequented streets in Lima and since May 2014 the only thing they get managed is to put tarmac on one of the four lanes...of course the alcalde put also a sign up that this is not his business...just sad!
