Dear Parents and Friends,

Greetings from Cusco!

It´s hard to believe we arrived in Peru only one week ago today. What a week it has been! We´ve traveled from Lima to Huaraz, to the mountains of Huascaran National Park, back to Lima, and finally to Cusco, where we arrived this morning. We have already shared too many laughs to remember as well as a few tears, had our first bouts of minor GI illness (don´t worry-- we´re all getting the treatment we need and are doing quite well), and started figuring out how to work together as a group.

Tomorrow morning we head up to the Parque de la Papa for our first homestay. We will spend the next five nights in the community of Paru Paru, a 90 minute drive plus two-hour walk from Cusco. Since Paru Paru doesn´t have electricity, we won´t be able to post Yaks for several days. We will do our best to get some pictures up here as soon as possible-- we finally purchased a USB card reader which should make it a bit easier!

In the meantime, please check out the map we´ve put together, which will allow you to identify those places we´ll travel that are unknown to most maps (and most people). We hope it will help you to follow our journey.

With love,

Francisco, Tara, Sarah, and Kenzie

Hey Padres!

We´ve just arrived back in Huaraz after a few days in the mountains. It was so beautiful there and we went camping and trekking. Travis built a fire and everyone snuggled around it. Two dogs from The Way Inn, Princess and Albert, followed us around for the past 4 days. They made Ali really happy. While we were in the mountains they attacked all the cows and ate all our stale bread. It was pretty cold at night so we kept each other warm.

The group is getting along very well and most of all have bought authentic ponchos, sweaters and tuques!

The food has been...authentic...?

Everyone has been taking great pictures which I´m sure you will all see.

Hope all is well at home

Love always,

The crew

Hello Parents and Friends!

We arrived in Huaraz just before dusk last night after our flight from Miami and a long bus ride along the coast and then into the mountains. Three hours later, after a delicious dinner of Pollo a la Brasa, veggies, french fries, rice, and lots of sauces (a truly Peruvian meal, believe it or not), we called it an early night.

This morning students set off on their own for the first time to explore Huarazthrough a scavenger hunt. They visited the market, the Plaza de Armas, travel agencies, the post office,practicedmakingcallsto instructors, and posted some great yaks!

Right now we´re leaving for the Way Inn, a lodge another 15 miles up into the mountains, where we´ll finish orientation activities before setting off for our first trek. We expect to be out of internet contact through next Monday, July 5th, but plan to post lots of pictures and anecdotes upon our return.

All arein great spirits and excited for our adventure to really get started. This is truly an amazing group!

With love,

Sarah, Tara, Kenzie, and Francisco

And we're off!

All twelve students have arrived and are waiting to board our LAN flight to Peru. We should arrive in Peru tomorrow morning around 4:30 am Central time, and Francisco will be eagerly awaiting us at the airport. After breakfast in Lima, we will head to Huaraz by bus, arriving in early evening. If possible, we'll post another Yak upon arriving tomorrow morning-- or later in the day upon arriving in Huaraz.

The three of us (Kenzie, Tara, and Sarah) are all really excited to travel with this group, and we'll look forward to sharing pictures and anecdotes with all of you whenever possible. And since we will be spending MOST of this course in rural, off-the-beaten-path places that can't be found on most maps, we plan to post within the next couple of days a google map with our locations marked.

Con mucho aprecio,

Sarah, Kenzie, and Tara

Description

I have been scouring my atlases and the Internet for your destination towns Pilcopata (Comunidad Huacaria) and Ocangate, as well as for theNación Q’eros and the Cerro Ausangate, to no avail. Can you please give me a larger town/landmark thatI can use to try and pinpoint their approximate location?

I wish I could be with y'all, running trails on mountain tops. One thing has puzzled me. The best distance runners come from countries such as Ethiopia and Kenya: Third World countries without yellow school buses, where youngsters grow up running barefoot to and from school at high altitudes. In fact, many flatlanders now train at high altitude in places like Albuquerque or Boulder or sleep in altitude tents under the (probably mistaken) belief it will make them better runners. But if altitude is the secret for success in the Olympics and in major marathons, why don't we ever see any runners from Peru near the front of the pack, or even in the pack? Jake: I expect you to spend your 6 weeks in Peru researching this subject.
