A few months ago, Fujifilm had a big sale of lenses and gear, with some drastic discounts like the famous XF35mm F1.4 lens for $450 instead of the regular $600.

Unfortunately, because I live in Perú I’m unable to access these periodic discounts easily. Shipping and taxes are a burden, and can add 20-30% on top of any imported good. So, no remote shopping for me.

Cuando haya viajeros del tiempo turistas, los peruanos del futuro vendrán a esta semana a entender cómo se salvó, o se acabó de joder, el Perú.

Pero hasta que eso suceda, vota por PPK. La moral personal no se puede poner como excusa para mirar hacia otro lado, lavarse las manos, y dejar que secuestren al Perú aquellos que lo destruyeron en los años noventa.
