    I landed in Quito and was picked up by my ProWorld rep. I actually did not know that I would be spending the first weekend in Quito before heading to the jungle. I had a lot of fun touring the city, learning some history, tasting local foods, and sight seeing around the Equator (a lot of fun!) and a community project. I met some people from all different programs, was …

            I have been here for only four days so far and I am amazed at how different things are. The living situations here are the basic and people get by just fine. It makes the US look silly when we need the fancy houses, stores, cars etc. Life is much more simple here... and it is a nice change of pace. To be able to sleep with windows open …

    Ok. Forget what I said last time about being composed on the outisde. I'M SO FREAKIN EXCITED!!!!!! I even made a little ditty: "I'm going to Peru, hey, hey, hey, hey, I'm going to Peru, hey, hey, hey, hey, I'm going to Peru, hey, hey, hey, hey...." It works in Spanish too! "Yo voy a Peru, hey, hey, hey, hey..."  I guess you've got to be there. I'M GOING TO PERUUUUUUUUU. AHHHHHH! That's all for …

    I leave in less than ten hours for my internship in Thailand. (deep breath!) To say that I am excited wouldn’t exactly cover all of my emotions about this trip. I am excited, anxious, happy, nervous, sad, hopeful and cautious. This is my first trip completely on my own so like I stated previous, I’m a little emotionally jumbled.  I am truly looking forward to all that I will experience while …

    “The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page.” I need to start writing more often…So much happens so quickly and I end up exhausted by the end of the day…But the good thing is, the true core of this “problem” is merely that I am out there enjoying every second of it; and I’m pretty sure that’s the best kind of problem to have… …

    There are 8 days left before I get in the car that will take me from my house to the airport, get on the plane that will take me from Wasington D.C to Miami, get on the plane that will take me from Miami to Lima, get on the plane that will take me from Lima to Cusco, and get in the car that will take me from Cusco to …

  • Smiles All Around

    I don't think I've ever smiled as much as I have in the past few days since I arrived in Ghana!  Everyone is so incredibly friendly and kind.  It is considered rude if you do not say Good morning or Good afternoon to everyone, which works for me, since I am always smiling and talking to everyone at home anyways… I was a little worried about adjusting to life here, …

    I cannot believe there are only four days left until I leave for Ghana... I knew this would happen, and yet, it feels the time has absolutely flown by.  Next week, around this time, I will be meeting my new Ghanian family for the first time.  I've imagined over and over again what my life will be like for the next five months, but know better than to walk into …

    Well, we arrived in Cusco safe and sound and were immediately introduced to our new familia. We arrived and learned that today is the day of the birthday party for our two little sisters, Luana and Nicoll. They are now 2 and 4. Our first duty was to copy a list of guests onto some paper which made us quickly realize that we were about to attend a fiesta with …

    So turns out we did not make it to Cusco as planned this morning... We boarded the flight at 5:30, waited for 30 minutes on the tarmack for weather to clear, flew an hour to Cusco, waited in the air for 30 minutes for weather to clear above Cusco, watched the clouds get worse, flew back to Lima and were still on the plane at 11:00. But no worries! We …
