Beating the Peruvian strikes with Peruvian cuisine

Due to the past two days of National strikes here in Perú, we weren't able to get up to the schools, so on day one, we lesson planned for the coming week, and today...we cooked, Peruvian style.

Armando hosted the TV-style cooking extravaganza, and we cooked Lomo Saltado (although we used chicken). It turned out well, especially with a nip of Pisco or two!

We head to the schools tomorrow as things should return to normal, armed with some pretty impressive lesson plans, and almost all our hair intact! We are taking more control of the teaching, and by putting in partitions in each classroom, we can really concentrate on each grade.
