This morning we took our places in front of our respective laptops once again, and as soon as I greeted them, my mum said "I went to Peru!". Now, I will be going to Peru at the end of December to do the Inca Trail, and that has been a major topic for the past few weeks, and knowing my mum's worrying nature, I thought she had a dream about my impending adventure. Anyway, I asked "How so?"
It turns out she watched a documentary about Peru on one of their local channels, and being the very intelligent and perceptive woman that she is, she recited some information about Peru that I did not know. Here are just a few of what I learned from my mum today:
- Peru is the motherland of potatoes with close to 3000 varieties
- A government school in Lima is teaching Turkish as second language
- The original Peruvian language, Quechua does not have an alphabet and is mostly a spoken language
Thank you, mum!
