    The thing is I'm in a situation where I've come to realize that I want to do my externship in south America Peru. I'm going to get my degree in science. I have great food and customer service experience in GREEK, ITALIAN, Peruvian, cuisine. Is it to late to look and send and call? I got great recommendations even from my chef instructor who's from Paris, France who is a very intelligent person and loves the peruvian cuisine. He told me to what makes you happy, I really want to learn direct on the peruvian food. my externship is min 3 months or 12 weeks, housing and money for the flight isn't a issue. I've should of never waited this late. but I finally realized that I want to leave the US for a couple of months and see how the food industry is doing overseas. I attend Le Cordon Bleu in Miami on monday I'm calling the le cordon bleu in Peru since that was my restaurante chef instructor and career services advises me to do so. ANY ADVICE on Peruvian hotspots? thats willing to give a passionate person who is devoted and honest to pleasing and succeeding in the food industry and frankly never gets tired  on 10 hr shifts. This is what I want to do with my life its in my blood. :)

    regards.

    thank you. it sucks because for some reason they took out associates program down here in south florida. :/ well as long as i get my degree. just stressed out about my timing with my externship. i wanna go back to my families home country. i mean i have gone thru so much crap in the state of florida. identity theft, small dealership fraud took 1 year to take to court thru small claims court with all my evidence gathered and they dont show up to court and i win by default. 2 weeks starting monday i have my 3 course dish final in class with 1 whole chicken. then after i have to call le cordon bleu in peru to set this up quick. x( time is killing me :p

    cheers,

    At least you won your case! Sounds like you're in a pressure cooker now, but it also sounds like you know where you are going, and that's half the battle, isn't it?/img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif
