The Self-Portrait Tour

Sorry about the delay in updating. A lot has happened, but it's hard to put it into words.

Katie and I had a great time in Cuzco and Arequipa. We spent a couple of days at Colca Canyon - one of the deepest in the world. We spent a little time in some thermal hotsprings, called baths in Peru. And we at the best Alpaca empanadas (called Sartenas, I believe). We got to meet up with my friend Angie very briefly as she had to return to site, but it's always so nice spending time with your Peace Corps friends, and when you're on vacation they can tell you the best places to go and how to avoid the not so great places. All in all, we had a great time in both departments of Cuzco and Arequipa. We even spent a few relaxing hours in Arequipa, the city, just chilling and walking around. We bought a ton of little souvenirs. But mostly, it's just be nice to have Katie here. We've been chatting and getting all caught up on our lives.

Right now we're in Cajamarca. We'll head back to site tonight. I'm excited for Katie to get to meet my friends in Catilluc and for her to try cuy! She leaves Tuesday. And then I go on another vacation. Semana Santa where I'll get to hang out with morevolunteers that I haven't sen in awhile. I can't wait! Sorry, pictures still to come.
