Spanish in Peru after 107-Day Quarantine — On Friday, March 13th , AMAUTA staff and Spanish teachers went home at the end of a normal workday ready for the weekend. On Sunday evening, we got the shocking announcement from the president of Peru that we were entering a nationwide quarantine and state of emergency due to the Corona Pandemic with the closure of all borders by land, air and sea. We suddenly could not leave our homes, could not go to the AMAUTA, and we had to follow a strict and mandatory curfew. This lockdown would last for 107 days!
