Viaje al otro mundo

peru, peru

It has been over one week now in Peru — a couple of days in Lima and a week in Cusco (with a 20+ hour bus ride in between). The people are wonderful, there is lots of clear poverty, and lots of corruption in government. What’s new?

I just finished a one-week language class along with a homestay here in Cusco, and my español is better for it. We had classes of only 4 students, lots of fun in class, and incredible activities every afternoon (mostly visiting Incan ruins around Cusco). I am hoping that by the time I get to the World Social Forum I’ll be able to understand everyone and communicate. For my 5-minute speech (in Spanish) I didn’t waste the opportunity —  I spoke about the WSF and its history and impact.

Very early tomorrow morning I leave for the 4-day hike of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and I can’t wait!
