The streets of Arequipa are rather quiet today. Classes were cancelled because of a public transportation strike (una huelga) due to the increase in the price of petroleum. No complaints here though, I got to sleep in which is a commodity for me these days.
Graded papers yesterday and it felt rather odd to tell students that their theses lacked depth or that they needed to give better examples in their supporting sentences. Less than 4 months ago I was in their position complaining that my teachers were ignorant and if they wanted a “stronger” thesis statement they should write it themselves. Oh how the tables have turned
