How we got here…

Once upon a time, a Peruvian girl met a Belgian guy in an Irish bar in North Carolina.  It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it was the best thing ever happened to me.  Patricia and I met when she was an au-pair in NC and I was still working for GE in Durham.  Now we live in Cusco, Peru, where Patricia is finishing her degree and I am working as an independent consultant.

  14. Hello! I went to Cuzco last December-January (I was there for New Year’s and it was awesome!)… I was there for 2 weeks and I loved it! As a matter of fact, I fell in love with Cuzco and here I am one year later and I am still dreaming of how wonderful it was. So I googled “work in Peru” because I have a far-fetched dream (I am still an undergrad) that I am going to move to Peru and work there and live there and find my husband and be sooo happy lol…. Anyways I am fascinated by your whole site, I think it’s amazing how you’ve transitioned to living there. Best of luck and feel free to write…

  15. Wow, Ward, you have your own fan club going! You sound like a great guy. Congrats on your carné, but remember, DIGEMIN again in 12 months for the renewal, and you have your tax to pay for 2009 in just a couple of months. Yep, twice in one year. Every year. Enjoy your never ending visits to immigrations, I know I do.
