That is the country that has captured my heart.
Today, July 28, is Peru’s Independence Day. I always like to celebrate it by having my favorite Peruvian dish: lomo saltado. If you check my previous July 28th entries you will find the recipe.
Today I want to honor Peru by showing you some of its most precious treasures. And it is not the gold, which Peru is known for having a lot of. When Francisco Pizarro, the invader from Spain took the Inca Atahualpa prisoner, Atahualpa promised him a room filled with gold for his freedom! Go to Wikipedia and read about it under Ransom Room.
Peru’s treasures are its children, the future of this beautiful country. People like to go to Machu-Picchu, one of the modern wonders of the world. I’ve never had the privilege to go there. But I have worked with Peruvian children for many years. I love them!
My “kids” are now grown and have children and grandchildren. Here are some of the children of today, the leaders of tomorrow. Who knows? One of these might be a future President?!
Please pray for Peru’s greatest treasure—the children!
¡Que viva el Perú! ¡Que viva!
FOREVER LIVE PERU!
