Friends and family!

I'm writing from the El Alto airport. All of us have checked into our flights to return home. Shortly Bianca will be boarding her flight to Brazil, and I will be joining the other nine students heading to Miami.

It has been a beautiful adventure together here in Bolivia. We know this has been a journey for many of you, too, and we thank you for granting your loved ones the opportunity to embark on such an experience! Wishing you a joyful re-uniting when your young traveler returns home tonight or tomorrow.

    [post_content] => As I am wrapping up my time in Bolivia, I have been refelcting on one day that I had with my homestay family in Tiquipaya, on a Sunday when we went to the market. I went to the market with my sister Pati, we got there, and they had everything! We bought some fruit and walked the whole thing. I was trying to take it all in' families who probably live for Sundays when they make the most money. The whole town coming together to support each other- local farms, everyone talking and hugging and laughing. The fruit was so fresh, layed out on blankets unlike the gmo, perfect fruit you find at a  supermarket. Filled with blemishes, the fruit looked, and probably was, as if it was pulled out of the ground or off a tree that morning. There isn't one family who only sells coca or only plantains, but they all have everything. Stations with fresh meat, the animals heads literally laying on the table, and my sister was so excited to buy a coconut. Overall it was so amazing, and we took a Trufi overflowing with locals home. Pati said that every sunday is like this, the whole town comes to the market to buy their groceries for the week. We came home and I helped put all of the groceries away. The mom told me that she goes grocery shopping every sunday, and I now feel more inspired to buy locally grown food or to plant more vegetables in my garden, where the fresher the food, the better. I am so glad that I got to experience this amazing market in Bolivia.

Every Dragons student will remember their time of transference, when we reflect on moments from our course, moments that have left a mark on our memory, and will forever have a mark on our consciousness, and on our heart. Moments from our homestay, our trek, our language lessons, and so much more will always be cherished, but the feelings we had from these moments will be redirected into our life back at home --- transference.

But, after traveling, we are no longer the same person, as we have been changed with new experiences, experiences we can reflect on and lead us into transference.

    [post_content] => "Because in the United States they can choose to have summer if they want to"

I was at a family birthday party with my host family in Tiquipaya and a few of the older cousins in university started a conversation with me in Spanish. At first it was about Hollywood and all the guys were very interested in what movies I watched in the United States. However, moments later when they were asking me about where I live, it came up that it was summer in my hometown. One boy was very confused by how this could be (since it is currently winter in Bolivia) and while the other guys tried to explain to him the reasoning behind seasons with the tilt of the earth and all of that, another jokingly explained, "because in the United States they can choose to have summer if they want to". Although this was a joke and we all laughed together, I still couldn't help but think more about this in the following days. Why is the U.S. portrayed like this and how can we work to change this image? The U.S. is often portrayed as a big powerhouse that can do whatever it wants and I believe that this image comes from the U.S. intruding into other countries to change things instead of focusing on solving their own problems. By spending so much money on sending troops to other countries it almost conveys the idea that the U.S. doesn't have any problems of its own to worry about. Along with this, people in the U.S. becoming more educated about what is outside of them would help with this issue because they would be less ignorant and more aware that they really are not superior because so many other countries have things that the U.S. lacks. Finally, although a seemingly simple change, I think it is essential that the U.S. adopts the metric system. Not only is it an easier, simpler system, but by the U.S. retaining the imperial system it implies that  they think that they are better than the rest of the world. Okay... so maybe I've taken this a bit too far from a joke said at a family birthday party, but I believe that this is a real, current issue and that we should do whatever we can to start improving this view!

    [post_content] => Day 4 of hiking in the high Andes, 6:30 am. I wake up wrapped up like a cocoon in my sleeping bag resting on the side of my tent; I´m surrounded by a thin layer of frost on the grass below me, and I can´t feel my toes. Our trekking guide Ricardo had told us the night before that there is an optional, extra hard day hike up to a glacier lake at around 5,300 meters. That meant we would be ascending about 1,300 meters in 4 hours. Feeling the soreness in my legs, and lacking the mental strength and motivation to get out of bed, I was set on taking the day off to recharge. And then something hit me, and that was that I might never have an opportunity to see the supposedly beautiful sight ever again. And so I trampled over my crowded and flimsy tent, put on a fresh pair of wool socks, tied my hiking boots as tight as I had the strength to for 6:30 am, grabbed some dry cereal with powdered milk in my Tupperware, and headed out with Ricardo and the 4 other brave souls who were just as crazy as I. The next 4 hours were followed by some nerve-wracking uphill smooth rock, ice-drenched pathways, and just enough coca leaf breaks to make it through the morning. I had felt doubt, relief, giving up, and lost. It all went away when I came upon a massive bed of glistening turquoise water resting under a towering glacier mountain. Of course I then rewarded myself with the Trader Joe´s sweet and spicy buffalo jerky that I had been saving for a month. Overall, it was one of the most challenging hikes I´d ever done, but I am so glad that I seized the opportunity before it diminished away in front of me.

    [post_content] => As I looked up at the spotted sky treading carefully not to step in the occasional pothole on the road to our ecolodge in Copacabana, I noticed a couple of strange things. The moon, setting over the vast and rippling Lago Titicaca, smiled like the cheshire cat as if assuring me that my pattering feet would stay safe. Here in Bolivia, I´ve come to notice a lot of similarities between people and nature. The Aymara and Quechua peoples of the Andes believe that one cannot exist without the other. The world is on a constant scale of duality and balance. What I discovered looking at the edge of the vast milky way is that people are a lot like stars. They are inconsistent and flicker with emotion and promise. They can align to create groups of powerful constellations, inspiring generations of faith and hope. Our deaths are marked by brilliant supernovas bursting through the night sky, leaving dust to become the foundations of nebula cradles to come. A shooting star, raging and uncontrolled, can crash through universes, causing awe-inspiring chaos and cataclysms with the forces around them. The stars are vast and unreachable, much like the pounding hearts in our chests when we face adversity. However, it does not matter that they are light years away, as we are always drawn to look up at the burning balls of gas. They are beautiful and transient, much like the human soul. They are an irresistible escape to those longing to become lost or found. We look to them for direction, as the ancient sailors of our past once did, but end up getting more questions than answers. I found that attempting to understand or study the stars holds more danger than simply laying down on our humble world and grinning at their utter extraordinary existence. After all, our universe is only growing and the stars have ways of making the impossible seem within reach.

    [post_content] => When Sandi came to talk to us about her life as an Afrobolivian woman, I thought her story was extremely inspiring. Not just the history of her people, but her sruggle to find her identity and heritage. All while she was speaking, I could not stop thinking of my own origins and my relationship to them.

She talked about how it is important to feel like a part of something so that we can understand where we came from and where we are going to be in the future.

Who am I? Where do I come from? I know I was born and raised in Brazil, but what is my heritage? What defines a Brazilian? We are in a constant crisis.   Are we latinos? How do we separate ourselves from  the thousands of stereotypes that are placed upon our country?

From then I started getting more interested in this issue of identity. I started reading Open Veins of Latin America to get more background information on our colonized history. I talked to people and discovered comparisons between our countries. From the talk with Eli I saw similarities in Bolivian and Brazilian women´s movements. From Teatro Trono I reflected on our colonization and the living memory of our history. From the talk with Ivan I noticed our need to unite and explore our culture.

Far from my country I realized so many customs and saw how different we were to others. Before spending one entire month with only Americans, I thought that I had enough exposure to US culture to realize that we weren´t that different. However with my colleagues I learnt that this wasn´t the case. So many moments I just yearned for a fellow Brazilian (having Latin Americans around me helped). I just wanted a Portuguese tongue, someone who knew my reality and had a connection to my way of thinking and living.

Through this question Sandi brought me, and various interactions that arose from it, I discovered pride for my heritage. Although I have European descent, I am 100% latin american. This is a continent of resistance. It has suffered so much throughout time, and had been oppressed and underestimated. However it still rises. It has so much beauty in its nature, culture, people and strength. I don´t know where this realization will take me, but I learnt so much. Thank you Bolivia, you have inspired me!

    [post_content] => Saludos friends and family!

After four beautiful days and nights in the Andean backcountry, we have returned to the land of phone service and almuerzos completos. We are so proud of our students for working together and sincerely supporting one another during this trek, and during the expedition phase of our course. Students did all of the menu planning, cooking, cleaning, and organizing the schedule for each day of this trek. They worked closely with our experienced guide Ricardo in deciding on a route that was realistic and appropriately challenging for everyone every day. For some of them, this was their first time camping or going on an extended outdoor trip. While some of us were humbled by the exhaustion that often comes with being at altitude, we all remailed quite healthy throughout the adventure and were able to find a walking pace that worked for everyone.

Students will be posting about the trek, and about their general reflections on this experience together, over the next few days.

We are heading to Copacabana on Lake Titicaca right now, where we will stay in an Eco-Lodge for the reflective Transference portion of our course.

Sending you all peace and beauty inspired by snow-covered jagged peaks, turquoise glacier lakes, and days spent following high mountain streams.

Abrazos,

Los Instructores
