The First Day of School!

Monday was our first day of school at the Academia.  We started the day with a placement exam to see which class we will start with.  Afterwards, we went on an orientation tour of the historic district.  This was helpful to learn where the post office and bank are.  We also discovered some of the local murals recounting Peruvian history.

We returned to our host families for lunch.  Dona Maria made a wonderful potato soup and Lomo Saultado a Peruvian specialty with beef, onions, tomatoes, and french fries.  Good thing we walked back to school or I would have been muy sueno!

Our afternoon consisted of an orientation to the Academia and our service project.  We met the staff and maestros and they are all wonderful.  After orientation ended some of us went to Plaza de Armas in search of a cup of Starbucks coffee.  Silly I know.  We explored the plaza and then returned to our host families for dinner.

    Sounds wonderful except for the Starbucks coffee. Is anyone else blogging? Would love to hear about the experiences of others in the group.
