We met in Huaraz Peru, a small town in the Andes known for great hiking, climbing, and world class mountaineering. Alfonso had just moved there to experience new things, and I came to spend just a few weeks hiking and climbing. When we met it was love at first sight. We were both instantly attracted to each other, I was enjoying a night out with the ladies and he had just gotten a job working as a bartender at one of Huaraz's most popular bars. I could tell he was nervous around me, and I thought he was just so cute. He caught my attention right away because he was a tall thin Peruvian! Almost all Peruvians are short and stout. Within a few weeks we were dating and have been inseparable ever since. Now we have been together for a year and and half. We can't imagine our lives without each other.

We both enjoy the outdoors hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, mountaineering, surfing, and playing at the beach. Our new pastime is racquetball, or playing frisbee in the park with our adopted dog Lucy. She comes with us everywhere we go. She brings us so much pleasure, and is the most wonderful little daughter. She is a huge part of our lives and we both love her very very much. Lastly family is very important to both of us, and we love spending time with our families on Sundays. We usually invite them over for lunch and where we have good food and conversation.

I am very interested in fine food, and I am rigorously practicing my cooking and baking skills. I also love reading and learning new things. Exercise in the outdoors is also one of my favorite things. Finally I am an aspiring teacher, and we hope to return to the US so that I can fulfill my dream to be a teacher during the 2013 school year.

Alfonso is currently studying profesional bar tending at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu here in Lima. He will be finished in December and then we will move back to Huaraz to enjoy time in the mountains before heading back to the US in 2013. Alfonso enjoys surfing, going to the beach, and spending time in nature. He is always joking around, and has a wonderful charisma. He is very charming and kind hearted he is well liked by everyone. He is also very fond of my cooking and especially likes to wash the dishes afterwards!
