I am very afraid of this.

But I just listened to Cori's podcast.

I taught myself Spanish in order to speak to my Peruvian relatives, and my accent is the product of a Latinist living a couple miles from Mexico and visiting Peru frequently.

However, I will take a section and see how it goes.

You have relatives in Peru?? My dad was born in Cuzco!

Really?? Yeah, a lot of my family is from Lima. :D Though Cuzco is my favorite place to go in Peru. I haven't been in over a year, but I loved it.

Unfortunately for me, all the cousins have since moved to America to go to university. No excuse to go visit anymore. :(

A bit of a torture to pronounce certain words, but I guess I pulled it off.

I've never been able to visit Peru. My parents had left by the time I was born. I've always wanted to, but I haven't made it yet. My mum and I are talking about doing a road trip down the Panamerican Highway within the next couple of years, though, so I'll make it yet!

By the way, Gesine, as I'm in here, I'll take the prologuy bit (section 00) and chapters 4-5 (section 03)

Brave Caet! I'm sure it will be marvellous! How about I give you section 17, it's very short - just under 3,000 words.

Alright, sounds perfect!

This will take a while to get to you, just so you know -- but also, let me say that in this case I am absolutely not afraid or offended to re-record if the Spanish is really incomprehensible. As I said, my accent is sort of appalling. :)

Hi everyone,
This will be my second time arround reading (not in this project). I'd like to claim section 09 (chpts 15 & 16) if that's allright.
One question though, am I supposed to split it up into two files (one per chapter) or a single file?

Regards,
Antonio

Sorry Antonio, I missed your post! I'll sign you up for section 09. Please put both chapters into one file. :)
