Feliz 28 de Julio Peru!!

30 Jul

Peru, my birth country, just celebrated their 189th Anniversary on July 28th, 2010. This is obviously a day of celebration since I am proud of my roots and origins; yet what makes me particularly proud is that Peru has come such a long way in its development and has made itself very well recognized on an international level, not just as another country in South America, but as a country which has truly made a mark in international development.

Earlier this year, Hilary Clinton visited my home country to meet with the current president of Peru, Alan García Pérez, and was delighted with the country, the people and what it had to offer and all that she experienced on her visit. She went to Peru to discuss different affairs between the United Estates and Peru since they have worked together for many years, but recently there has been a movement to make that partnership closer than ever before.

Hilary wrote a piece for the Latin American Herald Tribune ( http://www.laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId=361257&CategoryId=14095 ) to congratulate Peru on their 189th anniversary and take the time to acknowledge and present her thoughts on the country. As mentioned before, the United Estates and Peru have had a close partnership for various reasons, and as Hilary Clinton mentioned in her article “Our relationship is rooted in our shared respect for democratic governance, our commitment to free trade and open markets, and our vigorous defense of individual rights and civil liberties.” Following this quote she recognized Peru for their movements which as sure to keep the country on the track of economic growth and stability for many years to come.

This article and recognition by Hilary Clinton make me even more proud to be a Peruvian young woman. Even though I don’t still live in Peru, I try to maintain updated with its current affairs and particularly it’s movements on a world stage. I would like my country to be recognized on a higher level than another developing country in South America, but as a country that has truly made a mark and impacted positive changes and developments on an international level.

Peru is a very unique country which is very rich in natural resources, is made up of three regions (the Coast, the Andes and the Amazonic Jungle) which is a rare diversity all in one country and is home of one of the 7 wonders of the world, Machu Picchu. It’s a country with so much to offer on so many level, particularly with its tourism since you really don’t ever get enough time to try it all; and trust me I’ve tried it on my month long trips. For this and so many reason I highly recommend people to visit and experience a unique vacation full of adventure, fun and memories that will truly last a lifetime. Once again Feliz 28 de Julio Peru! or Happy 28th of July Peru!

With Love,

Christie
