Lima, Peru: St. Andrew’s Team – Day 3 on the Site

Posted in Peru on March 13, 2014

Last night after dinner we hit up the Inka Market and bartered to get some great deals with shop owners who don´t speak English.

Today was another day on the worksite (day number 3). Everyone was starting to feel the heat this morning and the exhaustion kicked in, but as soon as we got to the school and saw the children and their smiling faces, everything got better.

After we hauled 1000 bricks and a truck load of sand, and some of us got to learn how to lay the bricks to make the walls. We got to spend a lot of time with the children and they are getting much more comfortable having us around.


Tonight we are heading out for a traditional Peruvian dinner and going to try cuy (guinea pig)!!!
