Popcorn, Potatoes and Poverty

There's a short article here about our early experiences in Peru.


  1. Hi Amanda & Neil,

    I just wanted to say that this is one of the (if not the very) best articles on adapting to a new culture and language that I've read. You capture the differences and difficulties so well, and naturally. It reminds me of our first arrival in Punta Arenas and expeditions to the supermarket on our own ... but you aren't there on holiday and the pressures on you to learn and get things right are much greater than our experience. I'd like to share this with our local Christian Writers' Group meeting if that's ok. Every blessing to you and Daniel & Sophie as you become more and more fluent in language and comfortable in culture. Graham.

  2. Well done Amanda and Neil for a great article - and for all the news items on your blog. Thanks also for the skype conversation with Sarah last week - it was great to see you all! God bless. Paul

  3. Thanks Graham and Paul. Graham - please do share this with the Christian Writers' Group and any feedback is much appreciated - I am always looking to improve!
