So excited to meet our families!

Hello dear families,

We are heading towards our first experience out of the group. We have been together for the last five days greeting ready for our experiences in this really amazing area of the world. We have learned how to keep our selves safe and healthy. At the same time, we have been turning into a more cohesive group that will provide support to each other during these experiences in the andes and amazon.

Today we will beging our first homestays and get the experience of living with a local family in the Andes of Peru. The community of Paru Paru is opening its arms to us. We will experience the power of potatoes in the local economy and overall culture. Paru Paru is one of the seven communities that are part of the national Potato Park.

For the five days that we are in this community will not have access to internet or phones. We will communicate with all of you when we are back in town. For now we want to send all of you our love and appreciation!
