peru at last

Greetings from Huancayo Peru! The trip here was crazy!!! It was a two hour plane ride to Miami, where I stayed for one night before taking the 6 hour plane ride to Lima Peru. OH MY GOSH, Peru is soooooooo different. What is funny is that the first three resturants that i saw where: KFC, Burger King, and chinese food. It was really funny. I spent two nights in Lima where I met all of the students from all over the world that decided to come to Peru. They were all so nice, some of the countries that they were from are Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland ( I made a really good friend from here!), and New Zealand. On sunday we drove for 8 hours in this amazing bus up to Huancayo. Unfortuanatly I did not feel well the entire time. Then when we finally arrived we met up with our host families, everyone was so excited. When I got to my house I still did not feel very well so I did not eat much dinner. I also got really homesick, i felt bad because I was crying for most of Monday morning. But my host mom made me feel a lot better. I am still homesick and I still miss the USA and my family very much, but I am a bit more excited for this next year. I will start school in a week, so everything is going to get veny crazy, luckily I have an amazing host family to help me. I miss everyone so much, please e-mail me!


  1. I'm really glad you made a bunch of friends when you stayed in Lima! I, being an "army brat", always think about whether I'll have friends wherever I'm going. I'm also happy to know that your host mom can comfort you when you feel homesick; you'll have fantastic support while you're there. Before I was worried you wouldn't like Peru, but now I can see you'll have a fantastic time. Don't be a grouch and get as many new experiences as you can!

  2. Im so glad that you are having a good time! Don't worry about being homesick, you'll feel better soon! Just remember that we all miss you so much so keep us posted!

  3. Hi Lindsey,

    I'm sorry I did not get to see you before you left. I miss your smiling face.

    Riddle: A man pushing his car stopped outside a hotel. As soon as he got there, he knew he was bankrupt. Why?
