Estamos aqui!

Hola de Lima Peru!  After a LONG day of travel that began at 3:30am, we arrived in Lima at midnight and fell into our bunks in the Hostal Kaminu.  I have to say that, even under the stress of all the hurry-to-wait, hurry-to-wait madness of airplane travel, this group of students was nothing but cheerful and helpful and bonded over extensive games of Hearts and Bananagrams.  This morning we slept in and woke up fresh and ready to explore!  After an incredibly delicious lunch that introduced us to many different Peruvian dishes, we headed into the heart of the city on a bus.  I`ll let the students post about their favorite things they saw (I know Eliot`s was the catacombs full of skeletons!) - but for me it was probably the Plaza de Armas, the main square in town, overflowing with thousands of Limeños watching a football game on a massive screen.  What a scene!
  Tomorrow morning we hop on a plane to Puno, high in the Andes on the shores of Lake Titicaca to explore a very different side of Peru.
