Talk at the Alianza Francesa

I got to attend a very interesting lecture set on the fate of the Inca noble linneages since the Conquest, presented at the auditoriom of the Alianza Francesa and the Instituto Frances de Estudios Andinos (IFEA), last night.

The presenters were very interesting and had a great deal of information and thorough knowledge of their subject.  They were also amazingly tight in their presentations, finishing in exactly their allotted amount of time.

Peruvians, on the other hand, seem unable to simply pose a question, they have to thank and congratulate the speakers, and drone on with discursive statements for several minutes before they finally arrive at their question.  And even then, they don't want to give up the mic!
