First Day in Cusco


After finishing orientation in Puerto Maldonado, our group traveled to the indigenous community of Boca Pariumanu. We interacted with the children and adults in our homestay while we spent time learning about medicinal plants, the Amazon, and the culture of the community. Those three days went by very quickly! Last night our group slept on a ten hour bus ride, arriving in Cusco this morning. We have now been tasked with exploring the city. So far, it is beautiful. This afternoon, Peru is playing Brazil in the finals, so everyone in the city is excited for the game. Hopefully Peru wins! We miss you all!
