My stay in Peru was short but enjoyable and the workshop organizers demonstrated remarkable hospitality. My first impression is that Peru is a fascinating land, inhabited by hard-working people who are rightfully proud of their heritage. I hope to visit again.

A First Taste of Peru
I recently returned from the Latin American Workshop on Wireless Networks for Rural Areas in Ica, Peru. Due to a very tight travel schedule this month, I spent more time on airplanes and buses than at the actual workshop, but I am very glad I went. The workshop brought together researchers, regulators and carriers to discuss current barriers to rural telecommunications service and review the activities of some exciting projects, especially in Peru and Brazil.
