Victor has been on the streets of Lima, Peru, for 32 years.

When I asked him what is his future he responded, “What future can I have?”

This video is in Spanish. I hope to add English subtitles soon.

I’ve known for some time that the natural progression of this vlog would be to go international. Being honest, the thought scares me. Homelessness around the world is much different than homelessness in America, and I am not sure if I am ready for the challenge. But I was never ready for any of this. I don’t know if I ever will be. I simply make things happen to the best of my ability. Honest, most of what I do does not make sense so if I think about it too long I may chicken out.

Recently I was asked to speak in Lima, Peru. As with most speaking invitations I try and go out and make new homeless friends. I have never worked with an interpreter before, and this trip to the ‘bad part of town’ was for the most part spontaneous. When our gracious host found a driver that spoke even a little English we took off.
