After splitting up the Civic Semester group into three units, our group (Chiamaka, Claire, Jason, and Waideen) headed off to have a delicious lunch in the growing town of Urubamba, the place we will call home for the next three months. Succeeding lunch in this beautiful place was a scavenger hunt continuing in the same three groups. One of the more memorable parts of completing this scavenger hunt is asking a local for their cell phone in a bakery (where we enjoyed the most amazing cinnamon buns); this task was daunting but laughable as we tried to present our best accents and speak our best Spanish to “locals” who happened to be European travelers. This was just another reminder of Urubamba’s growing tourism factor and an exciting addition to our scavenger hunt.
