Being in Peru and experiencing a home stay in Parque De La Papa was amazing. For starters, the different lifestyle, food, and environment were so interesting to experience first hand. My home stay family was Cesar(dad), Ilaria (Mom), Norma (Sister), Andrea (Sister), and Diego (Brother). The first day, Remy and I went to do some work by moving a pile of wood and laying it out to dry. After we learned the process of the moraya (preserved potatoes), and we took potatoes out the river and washed them. We also had the opportunity to learn about textiles and participate in the process; it was quite hard. Throughout the home stay we ate amazing food, and everything was really fresh. Overall we had an amazing time, and can’t wait to see more of Peru!
