This trip has been very exciting right from the start. One day stay in Lima was great. Got to know a little more about Peruvian culture and had some great
Peruvian food. We have settled down in Tarapoto and I love everything here except the hot weather, which actually isn't too bad. Office hours are from 8 AM
to 1 PM and then 3 PM to 6 PM. Spending after hours each day to brush up on my Spanish, but still have a long way to go. We are also making progress on the
projects. I am trying to drill my project down to determine what the deliverables are and to make sure I’m clear on all assignments. We made a field visit
to Juanjui on Friday and it was very exciting. I’ll tell you more about our progress in the next post.
