Hey DRAGONES!

T minus two days!

Your I-team is making the final preparations and heading to Miami very soon.

A quick note on packing course resources and books --

We know that the course readers and the Lonely Planet guides take up a lot of space and amount to a small mountain collectively. So, in order to make it easier for everybody, let us all split up the load. We're going to assign six of you at random to carry the books. If your name is down below, PLEASE bring your assigned book, and LEAVE THE REST BEHIND.

Course Reader:

Emily

Shane

Sarah

Chris

Lonely Planet Guide:

Alex

Greta

--

Finally, if you have any last minute concerns or issues the day of arrival at Miami, please call: 415-724-6855. Your I-team will be waiting for you at the designated meeting spot - right in front of Terminal H, LAN Airlines.

Nos vemos!

Hasta pronto,

Ash, Japhy, Andrew, y Maria

Hola queridos Dragones!

Greetings from the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, where your Instructor team has been connecting at Staff Orientation. Thanks to those of you who have introduced yourself already. If you haven't yet, now is a good time to speak up!!!

We are going to ask that you all leave your IPODS, IPHONES, and other MP3 players at home. I know how important music and podcasts can be in your life (they sure are a part of mine!), but you'll be amazed at how much your experience in Peru can be influenced by such distractions. The best way to get the most out of your journey is to make a conscious effort to stay present. We think you'll find that long bus rides are a great opportunity to really get to know your travel companions as well as the Peruvian across the aisle.

This does NOT mean that we won't be enjoying music on our trip. To the contrary, we'll be surrounded by TONS of awesome local music, from theCumbias Peruanasto traditional Andean instrumental music featuring thesamponaandcharango. You'll probably all be bumping along to thereggaetonthats going to surround us in Cusco.

As forcameras, if you're not really into photography, I'd just bring a simple point-and-shoot digital camera. No need to bring anything fancy or new -- the most important thing is that you know how to use whatever camera you bring. It is possible to bring your SLR, although know that there is a lot of risk that it could be damaged or stolen. It also may be a bit of an inconvenience, since I imagine it is quite a bit larger than a more basic camera (and YOU will be the one carrying it around!). Still, there have been students bring SLRs on previous Dragons trips, and I think they were ultimately quite pleased with the photos they went home with.

A little bit of advice for anyone who is bringing a camera:

1) Make sure you have a good-sizedmemory card-- something that can hold a few hundred photos. You may even want a backup. It's unlikely that we'll have time to download pictures while in Peru.

2) If you have arechargeable battery, make sure to bring the charger! Also, keep in mind that we will not have access to electricity (for recharging batteries) for up to a week at a time, so you may want to consider bringing a backup battery if yours dies quickly. If your camera usesregular batteries, bring enough to last you the whole trip. The batteries we find in Peru are either overpriced (you can find imported Duracell but they are way more expensive than they would be here) or poor quality.

Finally, you will NOT need acellular phone inPeru. The instructors will carry a local cell phone as well as a satellite phone in case of emergency. If you do bring a phone with you to contact your parents at the airport, we will hold them for safekeeping and return them to you at the end of the course. Don't forget that there are pay-phones at the airport as well that are easy to use, and much more convenient to contact your folks.

Any other questions? Feel free to post them up on the YAK board!


Que les vayan bien, y nos vemos en un par de dias!


Abrazos,

Ash, Andrew, Japhy, y Maria

Hey Guys,

My name's Shane, and I go to Menlo High School in the Bay Area. I'm 15 years old and I'm going to be a sophmore next year. I love to play basketball and basically any sport. The only other continent I've been to without my parents was Ecuador, so this isn't an entirely different thing for me, but I've never trekked or anything like that, so I'm definitely looking forward to it. I've taken 4 years of Spanish, so I'm looking forward to practicing Spanish there. Not much else to say, but I just cant wait to see you guys on the 28th.

Thanks,

Shane

Hi guys!

My name is Sarah, and I am 16 years old going into my junior year of high school. I live outside of Boston, but I go to St. Georges School in Newport, Rhode Island.Can't wait to meet all of you in a little over a week! I have never done a trip like this before, so I am excited about going to Peru and exploring and hiking and everything...I play soccer(barely) and squash and tennis and I ski. I love traveling and meeting new people. I took Spanish when I started high school, so I just finished Spanish 2. I am decent at it (hope to get better!). I love taking pictures and exploring new places.

Can't wait to meet you all and have fun in Peru!

peace/adios

Sarah

My name is Chris and I am a 15 year old sophomore who lives in the Bay area. I go to a school in Menlo Park where I play Football, Baseball, and trumpet in the Orchestra. At home, I practice piano, build models, and hang out with my friends and sisters. I took Spanish 1 this year so I hope to learn a lot more Spanish during our trip.

Over the last couple summers, I have gone on canoe trips in Canada and climbed mountains in Colorado and California. I have never been on a where there be dragons program before but it sounds like we are going to have lots of fun exploring Peru. I can’t wait to meet everyone and start our trip in just two weeks!!!

Hey whats good everyone. My names Jonny Pauker and I've lived in nyc all my life. Some of my favorite things in life are chocolate milk and cheese burgers but i've decided to give um' up for a month or so to chill in Peru. I just finished up my first year of high school and I'll be 16 a few days after the trip ends. I'm looking forward to doing some hiking, activity-doing, and not getting malaria. Some of my goals for the trip are finding the chupacabra and having a great time exploring a part of the world I've never seen. Peace till the 28th.

Hey guys. I am so ready for our trip. My name is Alex and I am from Nueva York. I am about to enter my sophmore year of high school and I will turn 16 during our trip on July 6. During the school year I run cross-country in the fall and swim in the winter. I am a huge Mets fan so i hope there are no Philly fans on the trip (just kidding). I love to ski and to listen to almost any kind of music. I am really into acting and I love movies.

This is my second foreign program but my first with Dragons. Last summer I went to Spain and it was fantastic. My Spanish is pretty good, but I am hoping to improve it this summer. Looking forward to meeting everyone and beginning our trip. See you all soon.

Alex

Hello!

My name is Greta and I can’t wait to head to Peru with everyone in just two weeks! I’m from downtown Chicago and am 16 going into my junior year of high school. I love music and play guitar, and have also been a vegetarian for almost 5 years. I play field hockey and tennis and love going on runs outside with my dog. I have taken French in school since third grade, but speak absolutely no Spanish. I am really looking forward to picking some up as well as everything else on our itinerary!

I have never been a part of a program like this but am more than thrilled to be trying something completely new and different from what I’ve ever done before. I think that everything looks great and I’m so excited to go and get to know everyone!

See you soon!

Greta Behnke

Hola a todos!

This is just a quick reminder for students to speak with their doctors about getting started on malaria pills before the course begins.

We will be starting in the Amazon, and some types of preventative pills (doxycycline, for example) should be taken 1-2 days before travel. Others require up to a week. Let your doctor know how long you'll be traveling, as some pills (because they are antibiotics) should be taken for up to a month afterwards.

Best,

Maria Anderson
