“Connect to Peru” is now “Engaging Latinos”

leave a comment »

Dear friends…it’s been a while, but “Connect to Peru” has now expanded its horizons and grown to be named “Engaging Latinos” which will cover not just Peru, but Latin America, and particularly focus on how Americans can get to know more (and better) Latinos through their rich culture, history, gastronomy, and all those things that make Latin America a great place to live and enjoy.

So come over and join the bigger familiy of nations I will be blogging about at http://engaginglatinos.com, and also on your favorite social media platforms:

Facebook page: “Engaging Latinos” – http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Engaging-Latinos/182932255136692

Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/72362301@N02/

Twitter: @EngagingLatinos, and use the hashtag #engaginglatinos

YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/engaginglatinos

You will start seeing great content on these channels, so stay tuned!

Happy reading,

“Connect to Peru” — now “Engaging Latinos”

Back On Track!

with one comment

writing1Hi everyone!

Well, it’s been some crazy busy February work weeks and an awful flu I finally battled and went through before getting back on track to writing again.

I’m sure more than one reading this post has been working or somehow thinking on how they could be affected by the Economic Stimulus Package — the main reason for my several nights of insomnia and long hours working in my main job as a publicist in the Washington, DC area.

Also, I want to thank my BFF the Nyquil bottle for helping me successfully battle the worst point of a week and a half long flu working (whenever I wasn’t drowsy) from my bed.

Anyways, “Connect to Peru” and this humble writer of yours is back on track and ready to continue giving you the most exciting and fun things about what Peru can offer for your next big trip to my beloved South American hometown.

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback and comments, and for coming back every day to read our daily updates! It has just been three months since launched, and a wonderful journey!

Cheers to you all, and let’s get back to the show!  🙂
