Student's weigh in on Peru!

sunny 20 °C

Greetings again. Wow, two posts in one day. On the train journey today we had some of the students write down some thoughts. I think some of them are missing the loved ones at home. Don't worry, most of them are buying you things from the many markets and street vendors. Here is what they have to say.....I will leave you to guess who the unsigned comments are from....

Haven't been sacrificed yet, although yesterday our tour guide told us he would if the weather was bad. Luckily it's beautiful out and I am really enjoying my time. Could probably live here forever, except that I look like a gringo....Stephanie Gray

I doubt that I am the only fool to ever haul around an excess of 40lbs of camera gear around as I trek through Peru, but as we approach Machu Picchu and the Inca trail I can't wait to put every ounce of it to good use.

Just about to start my trek to Machu Picchu, I couldnt be more excited!! This journey has been tons of fun and I have gotten to create memories with great people.

Today is a special day that I will remember forever - about to cross off one of my biggest bucket list items when I hike the Inca Trail and end up at Machu Picchu. Can only wish that my sister were here to celebrate her BDAY on this beautiful day. Here's to a great rest of the trip!

I'm feeling very excited/nervous for this trek! This trip has been great so far, looking forward to the next couple of days.

This place is unreal and I'm never coming home.

Inca Trail today!!! If I die my car goes to my brother. This trip has been exciting, adventure filled but also very humbling. Love Corrina

How surreal is all of this?! I wish I could stop time and be here longer. Soaking in every bit of this trip, it is truly amazing. Love and miss you mom and sisters and brother! Xoxo Sehame
