I first met Flor at a Church Social, possible it was a Spiritual Revival.. sometime in the 27 years she has lived here in Australia, mostly in Blackwater, Central Queensland.. 

 

I was not successful with the up load of news item.. so saving to drafts..

 

After 25 years Flor Weir Decided to return to her homeland Peru and take her children with her.. Hard to find any mention of Flor and this trip to Peru.. I guess quiet recent. Flor and two of her four children traveled to Lima where they spent most of their three months visit in the City.

CELEBRATE International Women's Day International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.  and Harmony Day Harmony Day is an event held across Australia on 21 March, coinciding with the United Nations International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Targeted mainly at primary-school aged children, Harmony Day is an effort to demonstrate the Australian Government's commitment  in style this month at the Women's Expo.

The successful event is in its third year and returning to the Blackwater Civic Centre  Doors open at 9.30am and close at 7pm with plenty to fill the hours. One of the attractions at the expo is a cooking demonstration, held in the morning and afternoon, and will be hosted by Flor Weir.  Mrs Weir will cook three traditional meals from Peru: two entrees and a main meal.[a quote from the then Duaringa Shire News]

 Flor Weir "We visited two orphanages & saw how beautiful the children are. On the day we visited it was choir practice & they were singing. It was a heavenly tune. "We wanted them (her children) to see what it is to be under privileged in a third world country."  They also visited Macchu Piccu* while they were in Peru..

 . Flor & her family also visited the Andies where the Incas lived. Flor said, " We are most humbled by the way the people live independently of the rest of Society."  

This piece I owe to Journalist ' Krystal Hansen'  writer for "the Herald of Blackwater, Qld Australia"

I wished I could have posted the item news clipping or at least refer a news item & photograph of the young family..  May be more is to come to the herald & the Central Queensland News paper of Emerald, Qld..  http://www.cqnews.com.au/

 PS.  Both Children are on facebook..  to keep my id. a secret I will not approach them..

Their mother was attached to the arts in Duaringa Shire,  my guess it was the Peruvian Cooking.
