First Week in Perú!
I recently arrived in Perú, and I must say that it has been everything I could have asked for and more. All of my fellow American students and our Peruvian “patas” are some of the coolest, most interesting people I have ever met, the program staff goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is doing ok yet still being pushed beyond their comfort zone, the food is spectacular, and I can already tell that my Spanish is improving.
I miss my friends and family, but to be completely honest I am so happy to be here experiencing a different culture and way of life that I don’t really have time to think about the way things are back home.
I could not have asked for a better host family, they are truly amazing people and I am so lucky that they have given me the opportunity to stay in their house and experience their culture.
Everything here is so amazing, it is hard to pick the thing I have enjoyed the most so far, but I must say that having the opportunity to meet so many awesome people has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.
