The Deficit, Taxes, and Politics by Renford Reese
I was getting ready to watch the Machu Picchu sunrise when I got this post from one of my favourite guest columnist. You'll find more articles from him on a page dedicated to Afro-American issues and Renford's other papers The present paper, a broader American perspective yet always a very interesting and challenging one, has … Continue reading The Deficit, Taxes, and Politics by Renford Reese

WIPCE, World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education Day 1
Somehow, a miracle took place yesterday. Whilst things were not perfect, far from it, the people were at the meeting point and the Ceremony started around 9 pretty much as I had anticipated. I was told by another participants through the WIPCE Fan page that they'd be bused from the Plaza de Armas at 7:30. Given … Continue reading WIPCE, World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education Day 1
Cusco Day 2: tourism
I had a day off yesterday and took that opportunity to wonder around. I had so much anticipated a mountains disease that I was sure I wouldn't be able to do anything. Considering I suffer from the Ménière syndrome, I was sure height would aggravate my already fragile balance. As it seems to happen, I'm … Continue reading Cusco Day 2: tourism
From one Bolivar to the next (Cusco Day 1)
Yesterday was relatively quiet and that's a good thing because the pills I'm taking against mountains sickness seem to cause me a rather sleepy state. Apart from that I'm absolutely fine...so far. The Mate de Coca might also be helping... Anyhow, yesterday morning Miryam and I had breakfast at my beloved El-Patio with another member … Continue reading From one Bolivar to the next (Cusco Day 1)
From Avenue Bolivar to Hotel Bolivar
Let me explain this title. As mentioned in an earlier post, I was raised Avenue Simon Bolivar in Paris....as for the Hotel Bolivar, you're going to have to read this post a bit further 😉 Yesterday was almost a mystic trip into our common humanity. It started with breakfast with a charming New Zealander on … Continue reading From Avenue Bolivar to Hotel Bolivar
Pre-Cusco Lima Day 1
After my super CitizenM hotel, I'm now in a totally opposite, yet exquisite environment in the Hostal El Patio in Miraflores. Arriving in Lima was smooth but getting the luggage took an excruciating hour...c'est la vie. The "safe taxi", a term you immediately get familiar with in Peru, was there and took me to my … Continue reading Pre-Cusco Lima Day 1
pre-Cusco from Amsterdam
I was going to write a report of my trip to the WIPCE conference in Cusco...but somehow, my colleague Malcolm Hawkins prompted me the idea to make it a day by day report, sharing it with my colleagues while enjoying it altogether. This all started from Paris yesterday I'm not sure (I'm almost sure of the opposite) … Continue reading pre-Cusco from Amsterdam
