Goodbye Huancayo

Have you ever had a girlfriend/boyfriend you can't dump? Or a friend you can't ditch? Huancayo is starting to look like that. We've had good times together, but it just won't let me go! I was supposed to be in Lima right now, waiting for Jamshade and my parents at the airport, but there are...

Reply to Norma's Comment

Hey Norma, I just read your comment and lemme tell ya, it's good to hear from you. I think you - and ol' man Robert especially - would be happy to know that I've had the chance to explain the Métis people, culture and history to not only other volunteers here, but also many locals as well. ...

Funeral Crashers

Yesterday Harry, Jimmy and I ventured out to Chupuro, a small town near Chupaca, to go hang gliding. After a half hour of contradicting instructions in Chupaca we finally found a sketchy cabby to take us to Chupuro. In Chupuro a couple of drunk men in a small convienience store called us...

Parade & Glacier

The last three days have been rather epic. We never really knew what we were getting into either. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20 - THE PARADE Harry, Jimmy and the new yankee girl were told to show up at the orphanage at the usual time (9am) to prep before the local parade. We wore traditional Peruvian...

Field Trips

CHUPACA I remember if I already mentioned Chupaca. Guillermo´s sister Patricia took us (Harry, the Yankee couple and me) to the neighbouring town of Chupaca. On our way we didn´t notice a separation of Huancayo and Chupaca. Just randomly a plot of land was empty with livestock tied to a...

Los Niños

The orphanage is a gated community for these kids - it keeps the lil troublemakers in adn the big ones out. When you first walk in to the orphanage you´ll notice a cluster of buildings (houses and classrooms) behind a paved soccer pitch and a small playground. Everything looks used because it...

Lesson 2

It was Harry, the American couple (Michael & Lisa) and a bunch of gingitas from another orphanage and I who ventured out on my first night on the town. A metal head (the only one I´ve seen) showed us Avenida Puno, which would be more aptly named Avenida Puny, after the age and size of it´s...

Mi Familia Peruano

I´m staying with Cecilia here in Huancayo. She´s the same age as my sister Meghan and just as sweet. She´s incredibly sincere and her love for her husband, Guillermo, and 9 month old son Adrian is obvious. The longer I stay here the more we arm up to each other. I´m now able to tease her...

Lesson 1

I spent the first night in Lima with Lydia´s family - she works for Kuyay Sonqo, the org I´m volunteering with. Her husband, Juan, introduced me to Sour Pisco. Pisco is a Peruvian alcohol which is kind of like a harsh vodka. Sour Pisco is it´s most common cocktail form. He works for the...
