Plaza de Armas was decorated in support of Independence Day. Landlord hired a maid to clean our house today and told us that if we wanted to have another party, we would have to pay her S/. 50. Upon asking why, I was told that our house gets too dirty. I explained that we always clean up our mess, and if nothing gets broken, then why should a dirty house affect her? She then clarified that Peruvians clean better and the S/. 50 would be for a maid the day following the party because we do an ‘insufficient job’. This is how I started my 7 am Tuesday morning.
