Hola Friends and Family!
We have returned from our trek and are currently in La Paz getting ready to head to the small town of Tiquipaya, just outside of Cochabamba. In Tiquipaya the students will get to experience first hand the beauty of Bolivian hospitality. Each student will throw themselves into everyday small town Bolivian life, helping milk the cows, work the fields, help cook meals and practice Spanish with their host families. In the mornings we’ll have intensive small group Spanish lessons provided by local professors and then for the afternoons students will either meet with their independent study project mentors or partake in lessons concerning Bolivia led by local guest speakers and/or the instructor team. We’ll be in Tiquipaya for ten days and then head back to La Paz to work with the El Alto based theater group Teatro Trono.
