A survey in today's local paper asked an interesting question: "Do you believe Peruvians will ever develop the habit of being punctual?" Here are the results:
- 43% Yes-I think we can!
- 25% Yes-perhaps someday!
- 20% Not Likely-It's really difficult!
- 12% NEVER!
We've just learned to relax. We've learned to ask people to arrive about 30 minutes earlier than we really expect them. We just learn to enjoy "La Hora Peruana!" Then we remind ourselves to get ready on time. We still think punctuality is important!
