Postcard from Lima

Stone Bridge over the Rimac River

This post was published at mikefromperu in July of 2010

The Rimac River: turbulent as it cuts through downtown and modest neighborhoods with floods and bizarre findings. A postcard from Lima, written to a young man (literally) reads something like this:

Young Man:
Mike Fernandez Rivera.
Happy the days and years
But especially the day of August 9th
A day in which you gain a year of
happiness and wisdom.
May this day be joyful and may God
give you many years.
Your father Cesar Fernandez

Always remember your country.
