After four days under the glaciated peaks of the Cordillera Vilcanota, we are ready to move higher! The students have been living with homestay families here in Ocongate, peeling potatoes, learning traditional textile methods, and meeting with the larger group in the mornings.
This morning, we head out to Nacion Queros; an autonomous, Quechua speaking, semi-nomadic community in the nearby mountain range. The students are thrilled, and so are we! We will be out of cell or internet range until the 15th, but will send regular updates to the office via Satellite communication.
All the best!
