Re: Quechua

Hi,
I was in Universidad Ricardo Palma recently and noticed a poster advertising a quechua course there. I was thinking about doing it, but have decided to focus on improving my Spanish first.

Re: Chachapoyas

I booked my tours with the same hotel I mentioned in my previous post.

How / where to dispose of large items of rubbish?

Hi.
