Pelican Tales

A Caribbean chica from the spice isle Grenada, I lived in the UK for 12 years, and now (as of October 2015) call Lima, Peru home. Pelican Tales is about life in Lima, discovering the food, culture, language, history and more, and about adventures travelling through South America while I'm here.

Living Lima with Kids

Bilingual English-Spanish blog on weekend plans, tips, and thoughts on living abroad based on my experience. Whether you just got to Peru or have been here for long, if you have kids this is for you. I grew up as an expat kid, and I'm now also an expat mom of 2. Born in Madrid and raised abroad, terms like relocation, adapting and new culture have been part of my vocabulary and day to day ever since I can remember. I've lived in different cities within Spain, the US, with my parents based in places like Germany or Virginia once I got older.

Dulce Compañía

The author was working as a management consultant in London until July 2014, when she exchanged the fog to the smog of wintery Lima. If settling into a new country is like getting used to a new pair of shoes, in her case those have been running shoes. Getting to know the pavements and cerros of Lima and further afield before the sun rise, has brought many friends, adventures and much needed respite from the citys daily chaos. This in turn has led to, if not more frequent, at least less frustrated blog posts about another foreign transplants life in Peru. Her dream is to take part in one of this countrys spectacular ultra marathons and live to blog the tale.

The Real Peru

Welcome to my new blog about the real Peru. In this blog I plan to tell you about Peru, both the good and the bad. True information about Peru is hard to find thanks to all the propaganda out there about Peru being "heaven on earth" most of it spewed out by the Peruvian media and repeated by viewers and listeners who are bombarded with the same message over and over. Compound that with the poor education system in Peru and you realize why many people in Peru act and think the way they do. Just because the media repeats things over and over again, it does not follow that what they are reporting is the truth. Peru, like every country in the world, has its good aspects and bad. No country is perfect. Without criticizing and discussing the bad, things will continue the same as they have always been and never change. To any Peruvians who read this blog, I hope you can use this information to reflect on the problems in the hopes of making things better in Peru. Thank you.

Lyndsey's New Groove

As a french-speaking former expat in Paris I had no intention or desire to visit Latin America, much less move there. Then I found my dream job as a traveling photographer and writer! Only catch: I had to move to Peru. So now I'm a giant-camera-totting, bad-spanish-speaking, blue-eyed, tall gringa learning to live in Peru while I explore Latin America. I call it finding my "New Groove." It's a good thing I love llamas!
