These are the experiences of our volunteers in Peru.

March 5th, 2010: Kamloops High School arrive Lima, Peru.

Posted in Peru on March 8, 2010

After a long day of travelling yesterday, we woke up to the sound of car alams and Jess’ voice…

Our grumpy moods were soon taken care of though, when our breakfast time came. Breakfast was not only delicious, but also caused a flurry of conversations with all the new fruits and jam’s. We then made our way to our host partner’s headquarters where we were introduced to the crew. We met two Peruvian girls and two boys and one of them played his bamboo flute for us which was INCREDIBLE.

After lunch, we bused our way downtown to catch a tour bus to Mt. St. Christobale which had an amazing view but the ride up was a little windy. Then, after purchasing our own bamboo flutes, we returned downtown where we went into an amazing church where the bones of 25 000 people are!

An adventurous day it most definitely was, learning lots about to be in Peru. For example, one should always look both ways before crossing the street and one should not point at people with your finger. People stare at us because of the colour of our hair. Tonight were going dancing, it should be a blast!
