Peru, Lima – U30: Week 3

Posted in Peru on June 16, 2015


It was a short week coming into the third week we were here. It started to get colder coming into the season of fall. Cloud covered our worksite most of the day, but we never stopped being positive and working through it. The parents started to help us out by moving big rocks, raking the dirt to make it level, and clearing a path to make it easier. Even though the rain (which is more like heavy mist), they kept going. The amount of effort and perseverance these people put into is incredible. And they work with a baby on their backs! At the end of the week we were able to finish the steps. We were even given one step to put each of our names in. 
 

The weekend cultural excursion was to Machu Picchu.
