Re: NY Times: As a Boom Slows, Peru Grows Uneasy

I don't write in English very well, so I have translated the following with Google translator. I hope it's clear. The U.S. economy is recovering, its Pbi grew at an annual rate of 2.5, but unemployment is still high, the Peruvian government estimated a dollar at 2.72 for 2014, although it is now in ...

Re: Hidden Racism on the Mirabus?

In Peru all have a Chinese family, or black, or white, and treated as malicious so considering this, and also for the little substantial objective, more likely I think it is a misunderstanding.

Re: Why is it that peruvians don't want to talk about classism?

It is my personal opinion, which comes from Europe classism, because if the conquerors of Peru, many of them were beheaded including Almagro and his son at the Convent of Las Mercedes, in Cuzco; Francisco Pizarro himself, whose head in Lima, and so did his brother Gonzalo, who is co-discoverer of th...

well most land can be made workable with effort. Large areas say for example in Europe would have been marshy bog land, but that bog land was quickly turned into farm land, and that was 3000 to 2000 years ago.
