This is where I live.
So today is Friday, and you could tell by how excited the kids were today. I don´t know why it´s such an exciting thing for them, being that they took yesterday off of school because there was a soccer game in town. Even though they were so excited about the weekend, we still have a great English lesson today.
Yesterday I went to a few different placement s (since my kids were at soccer). It was nice to get around the town more and see what the other volunteers were doing. I now walk everywhere, instead of taking the bus. You get to see so much more and interact with the people that way.
So, if you can´t tell, I am pretty beat and don´t have a whole lot to say today. But I leave tonight to go to the south of the country for the weekend. We are going to the wine/pisco country, the sand dunes (where I´m going to sandboard!), and to fly over the Nazca lines. It´s hard to explain what they are, but if you google Nazca Lines you will see pictures of them.
I feel like I am becoming part of the community here now, and
Inside CCS House
The common room. Brenda, Julia, and Claire. Claire is the tiny one, and has been to 7 continents before the age of 21!
am forming friendships with some of the volunteers. A few of us went out last night to a bar called Magic Negra. It had a great vibe, and the bartender even let me make my own pisco sour.
I am going to add another blog right now about the Shining Path, if you only read one of these...read that one. It´s crazy that this stuff was just going on, and most of us knew nothing about it.
