Homestays in Urubamba

Dear friends and family,

We made it to Urubamba!! We are thrilled to be able to settle in for the next five weeks. On Friday students started Spanish classes and their Regional Seminar with Sara Diamond. They discussed definitions of identity, colonization, indigenous, and cultural appropriation as they will relate to our experience in the Andes and Amazon. This weekend students will have a chance to settle in to their homestays and spend time with their families. On Sunday we will go to Pisac to celebrate the wedding of César and Hilaria, two of our community stay parents from Paru Paru. Next week is our first full week of class! These photos are of students with their homestay moms.
