Lima

So it’s Sunday afternoon. I didn’t get any sleep on the plane. I walked around Miraflores and Parque Kennedy until my hotel was ready. I finally got in my room but my bag was still MIA. The front desk staff had sent it to the wrong room. They assured me it would be found. I tried to …

Miraflores

For the second year in a row I was asked to speak at a conference in South America. This year’s conference was held in Lima, Peru.
