Yanacoto

I am here in my new home for what will be two and a half months of training. I am living with a very nice woman who is excited to cook all the favorites of Peru. My training group consists of 53 other volunteers of which 30 are ¨youth development volunteers¨ just like me. It is an interesting and dynamic group, people from all parts of the country coming here for an adventure, a work experience, and plenty of human connection. It´s quite something and so far, the Peace Corps has proven to be making many efforts for us all to have a meaningful and safe experience here in Peru. Tomorrow begins our first day of training, the facility is beatiful and located outside of Lima in Choclocayo, a small residential community. Bueno, I leave you all until next time, estoy cansada!

Bye bye:)
