I need to apologize that a post for a rental property was inadvertently distributed to the list.  No matter who originates the messages, we are not allowed to post them.  


I know that in the past H-Latam did routinely post messages about rentals and other properties of interest to scholars, but the rules of H-Net strictly prohibit it.

Dear Colleagues:


A dear friend of mine is travling and renting his apartment. It's in a great location, close to restaurants, a key boostore, supermarkets, etc. It's in a quite building with ammenities with a 24-hour doorman. The place is strategically located in San Isidro, with quick access to the main universities, the archive, and national library. Please write to me if interested. Below is the description.
