These past four days have flown by! Despite the initial hiccups during our first day of traveling, getting to know this group has been so nice. We’ve been hiking, studying Spanish, and learning dance routines (shout out Claudio!). We’ve also eaten a huge amount of delicious food—some of my favorites were peanut soup and salteñas. A few of us also learned to make arroz con leche with Camila, the woman who has been cooking for us this past week. I won’t share the recipe right now, but I can’t wait to make it for everyone at home. It hasn’t been long, but I already feel so welcome, and I am learning so much!
Sending lots of love to Brooklyn!
