After a wonderful orientation in Urubamba, we are heading out to Parque de la Papa! Today, students will be briefed for their homestay before meeting families and moving into their new home. For the next four days, they will spend mornings with their families, and afternoons with group. During our time in the Parque, we will discuss themes related to environmental justice, agro-biodiversity, and indigenous identity.
We are so proud of the work the students put in to orientation. They have been engaged, asking great questions, and making great efforts to connect with our hosts here in Urubamba. We are leaving to today feeling excited about the potential for this course!
We will have limited internet and cell access until the 7th, so we will be sure to be in touch then! We hope all is well for those following along with us.
