Peru is a wonderful country, please don`t get me wrong. Apart from having screwed up things amongst people, you can find the most wonderful things... Perfect landscapes, totally amazing destinations, a huge variety of amazing food, colourful dances and rich peruvian rythms.
One particular thing I loved doing was climbing. I used to train a lot before I had to get changed of school. My life was sort of relaxed until that moment, things were tranquil.
I sort of started working for my family`s company. This is when all problems began, if I hadn`t taken the decision of working with my dad, probably nothing of this would have happened. I`m just sure it was from this moment that things started going wrong...
Mom was going to work in the U.S, the economic situation at home was in red alert. My dad`s first and most succesfull company had bankrupt because of natural hazards, just when "El niño" came and attacked South America. My dad doesn`t speak English, so we had to team-up and start making business... I was just barely 16 years old, just one month after my birthday, my father gave me a huge responsibility: If we don`t make things right, in less than a month we won`t have to eat, they`ll take away our house, your mother will have to stay more time in another country...
I can`t actually believe I started working for him, It should have been working with him. Now there`s no wonder why I ended so screwed up. At the moment we signed a Gentlemen Agreement, agreeing my participation in the company, my soul was sold. There would be no "Father and Son" relationship, but a "Boss and Easy-to-abuse Employee". The situation remained the same until the April 30th, 2009.
That day, I had to finally quit working for him. I had to start living my own life.
