The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party
Even in an overstuffed metropolis that’s located thousands of miles and an entire hemisphere from the one I just left, there’s simply no hiding from Murphy’s Law. As I discovered on the night of my 28th birthday in Lima, the less you want bump into someone, the more likely you are...

Charity Cases? An LG Quandary

Charity Cases? An LG Quandary
In a post earlier this month, we wrote about how the angel-faced children of Peru had the power to melt both our hearts and our resolve: Quite often Hol, Jen and I often would save our spare change just so we could distribute it among the palms of little ones who wanted to buy candy.
