weave the world
Hey You all! Welcome to my blog! I am living and travelling in South America, primarily in Perú.
Having won an Adventure Learning Grant
from Fairhaven College
(thanks so much!), I am now enjoying international travel for the first time. My project focuses on 1. learning languages, 2. connecting with local fiber artists and artisans (weavers, embroiderers, etc.), and 3. learning from them about how art plays into their economic lives.
And, being an ¨interdisciplinary type¨, there is also plenty of room for making friends, exploring ecosystems, learning about plants, dancing, cooking, conversing, projects in public and women´s health (my field of study), and all textures of humanity.
Being a foreigner away from home for a minimum of 10 months, and with no intention of blatant tourism, I meet excellent people and only suffer homesickness occasionally.
I welcome you to read on, and espcecially to comment, but be advised: this blog deals very rarely in topics of classical interest to tourists, and offers more of a glimpse into my experiences here and my integrations.
