I´m in Peru!

People, I am in Peru.
It is actually a little hard to actually believe. It does not seem like I am in Peru.
So here is a quick update.
 I am learning a lot about project research and needs assesment.
Our team is trying to figure out where to put our time, energy and resources.
I am getting to see how other people live and am feeling grateful for my circumstances.
I painted a school
 My feet will forever be dusty from all the sand.
I got to sit in the back of a truck all day and go to the beach.
I have not tried any food that is to die for.
I am buying tickets to go see one of the seven wonders of the world tomorrow.
The people I live with are fabulous
I am missing Oliver like crazy
I am planning on coming home early
I am getting used to cold showers

Gone Going Gone

Well, this might be my last post for a short while because tomorrow I am leaving for Peru. I will be in country just shy of four months, and I am having mixed emotions. I am excited to be out of the U.S. again and to work on my Spanish and experience new things, but I am loving my life right now. I am having extreme mixed emotions about leaving Oliver. It has been totally terrible. Yesterday and today I have been on the verge of tears at the thought of leaving him behind for so long, but at the same time it hasn't even hit me yet that I am going to be in Peru....TOMORROW! It's going to be an interesting two months, but, my bags are packed, I am homeless, my plane ticket is bought, Ollie has a skype account, and I have said my goodbyes. Hopefully all goes well. See you all in Peru!

A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to visit Seattle to spend time with my Dad. It was really nice to be able to spend time with my Dad since I only get to see him a few times a year. It's been so great to see him so happy since he married Jodi. We spent the weekend lounging around, and it was a much needed break from school and work.

This boy has kept me so happy lately.
