Hello friends and parents!!
We have arrived to La Paz, Bolivia. We walked off of the plane at 2:30am into the chilly air of El Alto, the highest international airport in the world. Tired, but energized, we met Pedro and Leah. They welcomed us with confetti and name games.
In a few minutes, we will board a bus and head to our orientation site, a beautiful eco-lodge in the cloud forest. As you know, students will have limited access to internet for the next three weeks. For friends and family, the best place to stay updated is here on the Yak board, where participants can post photos, updates, and reflections. Please be assured that Pedro, Leah and Matt will be connected and able to be reached easily.
