Buenos dias! It’s still morning here in Lima, and I am feeling motivated to get things done today, hence the random blog post
My husband was gone all week, so basically I’ve been alone and bored and on the computer a lot…
I’ve been binge-watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Modern Family, and Arrow! And I also finally watched Jurassic Park (decent movie), Anna Karenina (I still have to finish that book…) and The Good Lie (highly recommended!)
One of my goals is to visit more UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world… starting with Peru! So far I’ve been to 5, but I’m hoping to add to that list this year. Have you been to any UNESCO sites?
In honor of International Women’s Day last Sunday, I found this article: 39 Stunning Images of Women at Work All Over the World. Truly stunning and beautiful. I love the diversity shown in those images! And there’s even a picture of women in Peru… the gold miners… amazing.
I watched The Good Lie this week, as I mentioned, and oh my goodness I sobbed. Not only because of the storyline, but because I’ve met and worked with refugees- from Sudan and all over- and their stories were swimming around in my mind as I watched the movie. Refugees are such incredibly strong people who have seen so much more than my eyes will ever see. After watching, I did some research and read up on some articles about the movie & actors… Meet The Lost Boys, the beautiful Kuoth Wiel shared about her life as a refugee, How UNHCR saved Ger Duany’s life, Journey for Survival with Arnold Oceng, and there’s a TED talk about the music of a war child- Emmanuel Jal.
7 Delicious Enchilada Recipes… because who doesn’t love enchiladas? Now if only I could find tortilla shells for less than $7…
I’m trying to narrow down my Jamberry wish list from the new catalogs! I love these nail wraps!!!
I bought a packet of Peruvian lemonade mix yesterday that makes 3 liters… and I’ve almost drank the whole thing! It’s soooo good and tangy and the perfect summery drink for the hot afternoons we’ve been having lately.
I have about 50 pages left in The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, and I just found out there’s a MOVIE!!! Guess who might be renting it on Amazon tonight? Also, I challenged myself to read 22 books this year, and I’m only reading #3 now… guess I aimed a bit too high?
24 Diagrams that Make eating healthy easier… pretty interesting graphics!
Our new apartment is on the 6th floor and has awesome views of the city + sunsets. It’s like a daily show that I always try to catch!
What have you been watching on Netflix lately? Have you seen the movie The Good Lie?
