Foreigners Living in Peru: A young Texan who embraces Spanglish

Allison Garrett first discovered a love for the Spanish language when studying abroad in Costa Rica. After another stint in Bolivia, she knew Latin America was the place for her, and came to Peru in 2008 as a Rotary scholar. Originally from Texas, she now lives in Lima full time and runs a communications business. Not bad for only 26 years old.

Allison took the time to answer questions about Peru, speaking Spanglish and being a foreign woman in Lima.
