It's even a few days since I've posted, but since I'm getting into more of a rhythm, there isn't always much to share! I may only be posting once or twice a week now.
As a lot of you know, I have been struggling a lot with being homesick. The busier I get, though, the better it is to focus on living life here in Peru!
This morning, there was absolutely nothing but some quinoa (we eat and prepare it like oatmeal in the U.S.). "Falta pan!" is what Delia said this morning. (There's no bread). We took the quinoa off the burner and went down the road a little ways. She bought some eggs while I went and bought bread. On the way back up towards the house, the view of the mountain is absolutely stunning. So, her and I made plans to climb it on Thursday! We're waking up at 6 am, making breakfast and lunch, then packing a picnic to eat at the top! I couldn't be more excited! My first real hike! I'll have lots of pictures later on this week :)
Today, I decided to make something a little more American to share with everyone for lunch. I went down the the Main Street to pick up Alfredo sauce and a loaf of bread for garlic bread. I think it went over pretty well :)
I usually don't go to Corason on Tuesdays, but one of the girls is celebrating her birthday, and I was asked to bring a little snack to share. I picked up some animal crackers while at Canasta (it's like a Meijer). I'll be going up to Corason three times this week!
Tomorrow is my meeting at Casa Josefina! Finally!
Also, a quick shout out to my parents for helping me out of my funk this morning ;) I'm feeling much better!
