Moving On Before Things Come to a Standstill in Cajamarca

Foreign companies mine gold and other minerals and metals in the mountains outside of Cajamarca. The people of Cajamarca are objecting to the large quanties of water the process uses, among other environmental challenges.

Tomorrow begins a general strike in the city of Cajamarca and the news reports are that it will last indefinitely until there is a resolution to the concerns about the mining companies in the State of Cajamarca. I’m concerned that the strike will close the roads and airport, so Udelia and I are leaving here on Wednesday to go to Lima, to make sure I can travel to the States on June 13.
