Washington Post / APPeruvian School Collapse Kills 13: "Local officials told reporters that the building was not authorized to operate as a school. Unlicensed schools are not uncommon in Peru and a recent report by a Lima newspaper found 10 out of 51 downtown pre-university academies lacking building permits." This incident happened in a three-floor building in Puno in south-eastern Peru.
La Esquina del Movimiento (roughly meaning Street Buzz or, literally, the Corner of Movement) is
just outside the University Rector's Office on the main square of Ayacucho,
or Huamanga to those who love it best. It got that name because it's where the
students, professors and pueblerinos gathered to read the Lima newspapers,
talk politics and taste life. It was the epicenter of Huamanga's vitality
before the violence of the '80s and early '90s ravaged the town. Now Huamanguinos,
Peruvians and Peruvians at heart are scattered around the world so this
page -- and website -- tries to imitate that magic.
