Out and About in Lima

Container no. 28 is in the infamous “red channel” and will be inspected by the authorities for a second time today.  I called Customs several times between 1pm and 5 pm yesterday to share the good news that a TV camera team was on its way and would be broadcasting a report on Diospi Suyana soon.

 

Promises were made over the phone that the container would be released around lunchtime today, Friday. Hope it´s true.

After dealing with paperwork with the Church Council, there is a small ray of light at Claro Telecommunications. This Mexican company is willing to supply ten more cell phones (50) to members of staff on great terms.

 

Today is Friday – at 9 am there is a maintenance contract to be negotiated with Siemens. At 11 am a meeting with the Minister of Energy to discuss a very important subject. So far Diospi Suyana has had the privilege of a 30% discount on electricity bills. Hope it stays that way.
