Something in Arequipa is always under construction. This month, they’re going after the sewer system block by block. My room mate and I came to the conclusion that Peruvians have enough cash to start projects, but will stop half way because it will be another 4 months until they have enough to finish it. Thus leaving the roads half torn up or buildings with half a paint job. Am I surprised? After almost 6 months here: Nope.
Something I continually laugh at here in Peru are the ATM’s. Whenever I make a withdrawal it asks if I would like to take out “Cash money soles”. You know what ATM, I would love some cash money.
