Hi everyone I’m very excited for our journey! My name is Henry Popp and I’m from the Californian Central Coast. I’ve lived here in San Luis Obispo for the past 9 years after moving here from Santa Fe, New Mexico. I just returned home after having moved out to work and live on my own in Rapid City, South Dakota. South Dakota is a great state and the part I lived in (the Black Hills) was full of mountains and forests and lots of hiking, it was a great place to be. This Summer, when I moved, I drove myself and a friend across the country in an old station wagon. Along the way we got to see the Grand Canyon and the Rockies along with many other sights. I love traveling and seeing new places and especially like the outdoors. In my free time I like to travel, read, work on cars, try to practice my spanish, and take pictures.

I look forward to meeting everyone and to experiencing this all together. I have never been to South America but have always wanted to go, I can’t wait to see this part of the world and to be totally immersed in it with the group, being disconnected from home or whatever else is going on in the world.

¡Hasta Pronto!
