Sometimes it´s oddly strange when I realize I am in Peru, but alas here I am. I have now been in Peru for six weeks and the time is starting to fly. I have learned so much since I have come here and met some of the nicest people.
 Being in Peru has also enriched my hunger for travel. A few weeks back I got the chance to travel to Manchu Picchu with a few of the girls. There is no sight like Manchu Picchu at sunrise and Gods beautiful earth enriching your day.
 Not only have I been able to live in a house with 10 beautiful girls and 2 great guys, but I made so many friends.  The people of Peru have been so loving and warm towards us. Our landlord has become our new best friend, and her children have become our little brother´s. Our cook is darling and I must say I am proud to be one of her niƱas.
The only thing that is keeping me from not wanting this experience to end is that Oliver is patiently waiting for my arrival. The distance between us really has made my heart grow fonder. At this point in my life I really can´t not see him in it! He has been on the biggest blesses I have stumbled upon. 

Inside Out

One of the projects I am in charge of here in Peru is called Inside Out. It´s a global art project that we have decided to become apart of. We are trying to show the people of Peru how beautiful their women are. Today I went out with a few of my fellow volunteers and had the opportunity to shoot a few photographs of some of the nicest ladies this world has to offer. Our plan is to send them to the inside out website, receive 3 and a half by 4 feet posters and post them in public places. I can´t wait to get them up and get this project up and running! I really hope that the people of Piura appreciate these women as much as I do.
