Sixteen students and three staff from Father Mercredi School boarded a plane in Fort McMurray, Alberta at 12:45 am on April 11th.

We met our 8 new and old DWC friends (Jim, Cathy, Alicia, Terri1, Terry2, Jen, Chris and Russ) at YVR where we began a long and happily uneventful day and a half long journey to Kenya. Our first test was at the Kenya border where a very fast and efficient system accepted our on line or on site visa applications.

Day 1
We arrived in Lima in the early morning hours. We were picked up and taken to our hotel where we promptly checked in and went to sleep.
After a few hours of rest and some wandering Miraflores, we were picked up at the hotel by our tour guide, Astrid, from Llama Path. We were escorted by bus passed the Leap the Monk and La Herradura beach, two interesting tourist stops in Lima.
