PRLog - Aug. 18, 2011 - Why on earth would two people risk future livelihood and huge debt to teach English to Peruvians; two people with a combined age of over 110, whose main aim in life, wherever they go, is to make sure there's a toilet handy?
in at the deep end
For Robin, it was first the Royal Navy, eventually a life afloat in a narrowboat but always just that little something missing. Enter mid life crisis and madness. A dramatic change, a cataclysmic decision to go and teach in Peru (at his age!) Why? Who knows?
The account of teaching and life in Peru is about a personal world changing event, often funny, always difficult and almost always a bewildering look into the culture of a people so alien to Robin that he often felt in another universe. A book of triumph over adversity, almost 'Scott of the Antarctic' in its intensity -only Robin didn't die.
Robin gives us an amusing insight into how 'everyday' Peruvians live their lives, how they work and play, what's important to them and how they see and treat others. More importantly (to Robin anyway) a few hints on how to survive and maybe even prosper in a society so unlike our own. He also explores the country which boasts over a hundred World heritage sights. He experiences a magical culture rich in faith and mysticism, possibly a people like no other, whose favourite saying is - 'Mañana!' Which roughly translated means - 'Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow!'
