Cipro For Utis, This past Monday (October 6), at around 6:50 p.m., El Híjo and I were sitting in the living room when we felt an enormous jolt.
EH leaped from the couch: "Earthquake!"
The rapid shaking last for ten seconds and stopped.
El Fotógrafo emerged from the kitchen where he was cooking a very fragrant Bolognese sauce. His brother was right behind him, wafting on the scent of sautéed garlic, 10mg Cipro For Utis.
"Yes," said his brother, stroking his beard. "This is October, Cipro For Utis. 200mg Cipro For Utis, The month of the earthquakes." He paused thoughtfully. "Also May."
Now is a good time in this blog to introduce El Filósofo, EF's older brother and a lifetime Lima resident.
- Plato and Aristotle by Rafael
El Filósofo lives two blocks away from us with his wife, La Organica, Cipro For Utis mexico
, and two of their three grown children. EF's brother is many things – an artist, an artisanal baker, Cipro For Utis overseas
, a former Waldorf School teacher – but his identity, or his aura, if you will, is larger than all that. Cipro For Utis
, He is the quintessential philosophic Limeño, with a stoic, wry attitude toward all events, good or bad.
If the country's economy is posting record gains and the critics are cheering the robustness of Peru's democratic process, Cipro For Utis paypal, El Filósofo will remind you of the sudden military takeover of Peru in 1968.
If the power in your neighborhood goes out due to an unexplained municipal snafu, El Filósofo will light some candles from the Barrio Chino and explain why humanity is really better off without electricity. 100mg Cipro For Utis, If you are a frantic, overworked American mother (as I was in 2000) and you are in Lima with your two-year-old who drinks only soy milk and you have just discovered that boxed soy milk doesn't exist in Peru, El Filósofo will helpfully explain how to take soy beans and squeeze the milk out of them BY HAND.
He will smile as he says this.
As it turns out, El Filósofo isn't the only Limeño who likes to repeat the May/October earthquake adage, Cipro For Utis.
The morning after the Lima earthquake – which registered a modest 4.0 degrees on the Richter scale – I brought up the event during my neighborhood exercise class, 30mg Cipro For Utis.
The exercise teacher, a cheerful, disciplined woman with the body of an 18-year-old Olympian, 50mg Cipro For Utis, put on that same patient face I had seen on El Filósofo.
"Ah, si. Octubre. El mes de terremotos Cipro For Utis, ," she said, pressing her palms together in unconscious supplication. "Y mayo también."
Then she perked up and yelled at us to do twenty more sit-ups, 750mg Cipro For Utis.
Comments like those of the exercise goddess and El Filósofo suggest how the human psyche adapts when faced with ongoing threats beyond one's control. Peru, like other Andean countries located along the South American and Nazca tectonic plates, Cipro For Utis uk, will always be subject to earthquakes. Their exact timing can't be predicted. But to know or to believe that earthquakes tend to happen during certain months lends them a predictability -- and hence makes the fear more bearable.
Living in a city prone to earthquakes, power outages and occasional military takeovers offers a person several coping options: become a nervous wreck, drink heavily or cultivate one's inner philosopher.
Or, as I'll describe in my next post, become a devotee of El Señor de los Milagros.

Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, August 15, 2007
: It had been little more than a month since El Fotografo, El Hijo and I had packed up the contents of our 4-bedroom house in Florida, stuffed it all in a shipping container bound for Callao, and hopped on a plane to EF's hometown of Lima.
Everything in Peru's capital was new and strange to El Hijo and I, then -- and to EF as well, since he hadn't lived in Peru for 25 years. The food, the climate, the traffic, the language -- just stepping out of the front door each morning was an adventure, 150mg Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, not always an easy one.
For several weeks we had been staying in a friend's second-floor apartment in Miraflores, right across from the Church of Our Lady of Carmel. Each morning we'd watch the school children in their brown Carmelitas uniforms file into the round door across the street, their mothers and nannies waving to them from the curb. We could hear the children's shouts from the school gymnasium as we ate lunch in our tiny living room/dining room.
Below our friend's apartment is a corner bodega, where all day long customers stop in to buy snacks, sodas, cigarettes, and to gossip.
The store's candies are behind glass, Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance overseas, and you have to ask the cashier for them. It was around this time that EH became motivated to learn Spanish, Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance. "Una Kindersupresa, por favor?"
On Wednesday, August 15, at around 6:30 p.m., El Hijo and I were sitting on his bed, playing a game with a stuffed Scottie dog we'd bought at Wong. 1000mg Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, El Fotografo was in the other bedroom, typing up a presentation for a job interview with the UN in Peru. He had applied for a job in disaster planning, a career path he'd pursued in the United States during the 1980s and '90s.
Just as EF was typing the word "earthquake" (yes), the walls of the apartment began to shake.
First I heard glass rattling. 'That's weird,' I thought.
Then I became aware that the bed was shaking, too -- the floor was shaking. It was a bad rattling sound.
"Earthquake!" EF shouted. "Run downstairs."
Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, EH grabbed all the stuffed animals he had brought from the U.S., and we ran down the narrow hall stairway to the street below, with EF behind us. An older man and his grandson, Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance canada, who were living in the apartment across from us, stood hesitantly on the upstairs mezzanine, confused.
"Come down!" EF shouted.
They followed, dazedly.
The little boy was clutching a red plastic dinosaur.
The walls were shaking all around us.
Outside in the street the streetlights were on; cars had stopped in mid-traffic across from the Carmelitas church. Against the black sky, a strange orange haze haloed the tops of buildings and trees.
We stood in the middle of the street, in our stockinged feet, and felt the asphalt road ripple under us in long waves. Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance usa, We had forgotten to put on shoes. El Hijo held my hand tightly. He wasn't crying.
"What's happening?" he asked. His teeth were chattering.
"Just stay calm," said EF, a veteran of the 1970 Peru earthquake, which killed 70,000 people. "It will be over with soon."
It kept going.
I waited for windows and buildings to fall but they didn't, Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance. Some women were on their knees on the sidewalk, praying, "Dios!" The world undulated.
Then it stopped.
For four days after the 8.0 earthquake, we kept getting tremors in Lima.
"Welcome to Peru," El Fotografo said.
We learned that Pisco and Chincha and other towns in southern Peru had been devastated by the quake. About 40, 50mg Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance,000 buildings had been destroyed. More than 600 people were dead.
We, on Peru's central coast, had been lucky.
One year after the disaster, much of south Peru still lies in ruins. Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, Many people still live in temporary housing. Reconstruction is proceeding very slowly, Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance mexico, with some fingers pointing at President Alan Garcia, others at corrupt local politicians.
Update 8/16/08: Thousands of Peruvians took to the streets on the one-year-anniversary of the quake, to protest the government's inadequate response to the disaster.
In Chincha banners carried by protests "called for President Alan Garcia to tell the truth about where the $382m supposedly spent on the reconstruction had gone, and why so many people had still not received compensation to rebuild their homes," reports the BBC.
"At this rate, reconstruction will last 10 years and a generation of our citizens, of our children, will be raised in inequality because they live in huts and have nowhere to study," said the governor of Ica province, 100mg Mrsa Tetracycline Resistance, Romulo Triveno.
[Note that the governor blames Garcia's administration, while Garcia blames Triveno's buddies for the slow rate of reconstruction. Echoes of the post-Katrina blame game, to this American expat's ears.]
