Day 134 – December 3, 2011
Back in September, I posted about the bust that adorns the busy street near where we live.
The street, and the person honored by said bust, is Raul Ferrero.
As mentioned in the previous post, and as can be found in this Wikipedia article, Senor Ferrero was…
…Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Catholic University of Peru;
…Dean of Colegio de Abogados de Lima;
…a member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration of the Hague; and
…from 1967 to 1968 he was Prime Minister of Peru and later served as the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.
As I wrote on the centenary of his birth, the city was in the process of refurbishing the monument that honors him.
Well, on this Saturday in December, I am pleased to say that the tarps have been pulled down and the newly restored head of Senor Ferrero is now available to the public.
On my walks back and forth across the street that bears his name, I give a nod and a tip of the hat to Senor Ferrero. Of course, I only do this on the traffic island as when I am on the street, 100 percent of my attention must be focused on the cars, taxis, and combis whizzing up and down the avenue.
