28 de Julio

img_7092July 28th, 1821. The day Peru gained its independence from the old world power that was Spain. 28 de Julio is also the name of the street that I live on here in Lima and I like to think that it is poetic that I am living on this very street when I myself am fighting for liberation.

My struggle is within. Like all good battles, the one within is the hardest. I am strong as I am weak. I am smart as I am ignorant. I am filled with vitality as I am drained of it. In my mind is where I fight my battle.I am my own Jose de San Martin. In my mind is where I’ll overcome my biggest challenge: myself.

July 28th, today this date is reserved for joyous celebration where Peruvians travel domestically and spend time with their families and friends. It is a day commemorating its independance and fallen heroes. Av. 28 de Julio, This is where I celebrate MY liberation. This is where I win my battle.




Smiling is contagious 😀

Hello All,

I’ve decided to write my experiences down in this blog in the hope of improving my well being in aspects that I will shortly name and to serve as a memoir when i am older and (hopefully) wiser. My goal is to share the most important things that are happening in my life at the moment with the exception of my girlfriend which I love dearly and look forward to spending my future with her. What I WILL share with you is as follows:

  1. The Maca Journey : Documenting my experience consuming Black Maca powder and Huanarpo Macho. I have been mixing it in my water for the past 2 weeks with the aim of improving my sex life and fitness goals.
  2. Living in Peru: The experiences of living in Lima Peru.
  3. Entrepreneurship/Work: Currently working in Lima as an English Teacher while i look for a better paying job. Also would love to be a self starter.
