Ordinary Things 7: Strikes

Strikes. They happen. A lot. 

Whether it be postal workers, health workers, transportation workers, or teachers, everyone seems to strike. 

Currently, we are on day 7 of the national teachers strike. From the conversations I've had with teachers or directors lately, no one expects classes to resume anytime soon. 

Recently, the health workers of my region just went back to work after a 33 day strike closing clinics and hospitals. 

And I can't fail to mention the many times transportation was stalled or my packages were trapped in the post office with no one to give them to me. 

Strikes. Not my favorite thing about Peru, pero asi es la vida.
