Hola, Todos –
Tis the season to break my own rule about not posting anything I didn’t read in El Mercurio. I’m looking for 2 or 3 sponsors/field trip helpers to help me take the 14 kids from a little country school in Sustag to the Bioparque Amaru this Fri. morning. $40/sponsorship. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in helping. I’ve been told that touring the zoo involves a fair amount of walking and the path is not friendly to those with mobility problems.
