I know it’s been a bit quiet around here lately. Between the last week of regular classes for the term, finals week, and preparing for my trip to Peru, I haven’t even had time to get on the internet much at all. I was planning to schedule blog posts for when I am gone, but that didn’t quite work out. So, I just wanted to check in briefly.
In case you missed my previous blog posts about Peru, I also wanted to share some details of what I am talking about. I am going on a 3-week trip as part of my college’s third term (we have two 12-week terms and an additional 6-week term in the spring) with a professor and 4 other students. We will be studying Peruvian literature (in Spanish!) and visiting a local orphanage in Cusco while there. We’re spending the first 3 days in Cusco to acclimate to the altitude, and then will be doing a 3-day trek up to Machu Picchu. We are hiking on a more remote trail for the majority of the trek, but will hike on the Inca Trail the final day. The week following the trek we will be in Cusco, taking a couple of day trips to other cities and locations nearby. This will be followed by a 2-day stay in Lake Titicaca, and 2 days (1 night) in Lima. I am so excited for the trip and will share all about it when I return!
In the meantime, my classmates and I will be writing on a blog through our college. If you would like to see what we’re up to, feel free to visit the site, which can be found here!
Have a wonderful next three weeks, and Happy Easter!
