Hi-

I was wondering whether you recommend bringing an inflatable or a foam pad? 

Thanks!

Hello!

 

My name is Kaly, and I'm from Boston. I'm also on a gap year right now, having graduated last June, and spent my summer/fall interning on a local congressional campaign, and working at a local tea shop. I found Dragons through the college office at my high school after I decided to take a gap year, and am hoping to finally become fluent in Spanish while also experiencing a completely new culture. I enjoy writing, skiing, running, and traveling, and I'm looking forward to spending the next 3 months trying all kinds of new experiences with you guys

Hey everyone, 

 

My name's Philip, I'm half french, half american but was born and raised in Belgium. I am a gap year student that will be attending university in Atlanta in September. I love adventuring and seeing new things, and am excited to discover a new part of the world. I haven't got much experience in the mountains so this will definitely be interesting for me! I can't wait to meet you all and embark on a great journey together.

 

As for a little bit about myself, I love to spend time with friends and to have a good time. Some of my favorite activities are scuba diving, surfing, spending time outside, and just kicking back with friends/family.

 

Take care everyone and I look forward to seeing y'all!

Hello!

 

My name is Scott and I am from Indianapolis. I am 20 and have already completed my freshman year of college and now am taking a gap year. My previous semester was spent in East Africa. My experience last semester inspired me to turn what was going to be a gap semester into a gap year. 

My interests and hobbies include but are not limited to: sailing, paintball, skeet shooting, dirt biking, scuba diving, traveling, history, science, paleontology, etc. I am an adventurous individual who's willing to try and experience new things.

 I'm looking forward to sharing this upcoming experience with you all.

 

-Scott Bobbs

Hello Group B!

 

My name is Anne and I am from Northern California. I am currently on a Gap Year and just got back about a month ago from traveling with a friend around New Zealand. We were WWOOFing (volunteering on organic farms/home gardens through an organization called Willing Workers on Organic Farms) and generally just having a good time. My original plan for the spring was to travel to Spain and study Spanish in Salamanca, but after spending so much time outside in New Zealand, I decided that I really wanted something more rugged. I found this program in late December and it was perfect so I applyed and here I am. I am so excited to meet all of you!

 

Best,

 

Anne

Dear Dragons,

 

Welcome to our course.  Over the past few weeks we have been evaluating past courses, our own experience and expertise, and, most importantly, your passions and interests to design an itinerary for our upcoming semester together.  We encourage you to take some time to sit with this, pull out your CPM and guidebook and begin to familiarize yourselves with the spectacular places you will be getting to know in such a short time. 

 

We would also like to give you a bit of background on the way we design our courses.  While the places we visit are beautiful and deeply moving in themselves, the flow of our course is designed carefully and intentionally to create a progression of experiences.  In the first phase, known as Skill Acquisition, you will be learning important tools concerning how to be responsible travelers and taking ownership over your experience. During the Practicing phase, you will make use of these tools and engage on a deeper level with your surroundings.  During the final Expedition phase, students take on a more active role in the planning and implementation of course elements.  As we move through the course, the challenges will increase and your ownership of the experience and responsibility will increase in kind. Throughout the process, you will be guided by us, your instructors, and by the local people and landscapes. 

 

Furthermore, our Core Values of Awareness of Self, Global Citizenship, and Leadership and Skill Building will act as an undercurrent throughout the course, guiding us through the experience.  At each phase of the course you will find yourselves delving deeper into these themes.  And finally, as always with Dragons, the course will be flexible and spontaneous, allowing us to make changes depending on local conditions, group interests, and other things that may present themselves along the way.

 

Our excitement has been growing as we’ve put this together, and we can’t wait to share these wonderful places with each of you!  Presenting our Spring 2013 Andes & Amazon Group B tentative itinerary…

 

Andes & Amazon Semester:

Spring 2013, Group B

 

 

Traversing the Andean Landscape: Quechua Culture, Colonial History and the Peruvian Amazon

 

SKILL ACQUISITION

Feb 10-14:  Orientation - Arrive in El Alto and travel to Cochabamba. We’ll have workshops on group dynamics, our goals and expectations for the semester, and tips for navigating the culture and places we visit, in addition to day hikes and a market visit.

 

Feb 14-18: Toro Toro and first trek - Travel from Cochabamba to Toro Toro, a charming colonial town in the department of Potosí.  Here we will participate in our first trek through Toro Toro National Park, hiking through dramatic canyons, underground caves, pristine waterfalls and dinosaur footprints.

 

Feb 19 – March 3:  Cochabamba homestays 1 - Begin Cochabamba homestays and language study, development work and ISP work just outside the bustling city.  Here we will have opportunities to begin building foundational skills and also beginning to learn about potential ISP themes -weaving, Andean music, dance, politics, and cooking, among others. Our time here will be defined by the 16-20 hours of Spanish study per week, as well as the time with our homestay families.  In our first two weeks here we will really become a part of this community and immerse ourselves in this magical and challenging mountain lifestyle.

 

PRACTICING

 

March 3-11:  Sucre and Cordillera de los Frailes - Travel overnight from Cochabamba to the “white city” of Sucre, arriving to this historic colonial capital and one of Bolivia’s most important cities.  After a couple of days exploring the city we will head to the Cordillera de los Frailes outside of Sucre, backpacking through the arid tectonic wonderland that is this range.  Our trek will traverse more dinosaur footprints, hot springs, oddly shaped craters, and several Quechua communities known for their brilliantly imaginative weavings. 

 

March 12-15: Potosí - Travel from Sucre to Potosi, site of the infamous Cerro Rico, which single-handedly financed the Spanish Empire for centuries and contains one of the most tragic stories of abuse of indigenous cultures in the Americas. Today it is Bolivia’s poorest region and the still active mines give insight into resource extraction and environmental issues. Here we will partner with Connatsop, a collective of children workers.

 

March 16-23:  La Paz and Lake Titicaca – Head to the bustling city of La Paz for a couple of days to explore this dramatic city and meet with guest speakers.  From there we will head to the dazzling shores of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world and the mythical birthplace of the sun.  We will participate in a short homestays with Aymara families in Santiago de Okola, learning about Andean cosmo-vision and highland agriculture before heading to the Island of the Sun.  Alternately we will participate in a service project with an Andean priest in a nearby community.

 

March 24 – April 12: Peru, trek to Machu Picchu and Peruvian Amazon – travel overland to the magnificent colonial city of Cusco and the renowned Incan capital.  After exploring the city for a couple of days we will embark upon a spectacular trek to Machu Picchu.  From Machu Picchu we will stop briefly back in Cusco before an extended journey into the Peruvian Amazon, doing homestays with Huachipaere and Macheguenga families.  From there we will travel down the Madre de Dios River to Puerto Maldonado for another community visit and possibly a service project. 

 

April 13 – 27: Cochabamba homestays 2From Peru we will head back to Cochabamba for a final 2 weeks of homestays, Spanish lessons and ISP projects.  Much of this time will be determined by students as you take increased ownership over the schedule and begin to plan for the expedition phase. 

 

EXPEDITION AND TRANSFERENCE

 

April 27 – May 7:  Expedition - To be largely determined by the students expedition options include extended treks in the Cordillera Real; a journey through the mystic Apolobamba mountain range, including homestays with rural families in the village of Kaata; collaboration with Teatro Trono in El Alto; a bike trip through the Jesuit missions of the Chiquitanía; hiking through the semi-tropical Parque Amboró, etc.  The expedition phase will be a time for the students to utilize all their newly honed skills as they organize and plan meaningful activities for the group.  

 

May 8 – 11:  Transference – Head to a retreat center in Santa Cruz or La Paz for course-end and transference.  Closing student-led activities.

Great question about a bathing suit. 

 

The response is that while it is often better to have a swim suit that is a bit more conservative since there will often be locals around where we go swimming, Bolivia and Peru are not so conservative that you need to worry about going out and buying a one piece.  It is a personal choice on the type of swim suit you wish to bring and most will work, however, if there is a place that we feel we need to be more conservative we may ask for you to wear a t-shirt and/or shorts over your swim suit. 

 

Hope that helps and keep the questions coming... See you all in a few weeks!

I was wondering if there were any guidelines as to what type of bathing suit is appropriate to bring or if any would be fine? Thanks!
