First real day

Today was my first real day. I woke up at 5.30 – stupid jet lag. At 7.00 my lovely host parents took my to the bus, to go to a village called Urubamba where alot of the other volunteers are staying. The ride was one of the most beautiful I have even taken. The Andes were all around me, and everything is so green, because its rainy season. I will upload some photos. After waiting an hour at the bus terminal (my anxious parents had made sure I was there in good time), the rest of the volunteers came..only girls of course, haha, ad we ventured off to Ollantaytambo, a small mountain village where we saw traditional dancing, bull fighting etc. The pictures I took look like something out of a turist catalogue. The other voluteers were really nice, everybody is from different countries (australia, canada, holland, france etc.) So I definetly see lots of opportunity for a great social life here, and it seems that everybody comes into Cusco on the weekends. my housemate Irene also arrived today, she is italian and seems great, and is super good at spanish which is kind of intimidating, but super cool.

The only unfortunate thing is that the strong andean sun caught me by surprise and now Im have a bad sunburn and look even more like a gringo.

Besos y abrazos
