We are finally here in beautiful Tiquipaya and are ready to settle down for the month of October! The students spent their Sunday moving in with their host families, helping out in the corn fields, and accompanying their host parents to the market to sell goods. They took their first Spanish class this morning, and will be starting their Independent Study Projects this afternoon.
We are excited for the students to really dig in to this experience and begin to hone their Spanish abilities. As they become more comfortable with their new routine, they will spend time hiking in the nearby mountains (some above 16,000 ft) and planning their expedition phase for their time in Peru.
Well wishes to everyone following along!
