Yesterday we had our own little church at the hostel! It was election day here in Peru so churchs had to remain closed for the day! Elections are crazy here in Peru! Everyone must vote or they will be fined. They also have to travel to their hometowns, no matter how far away they are! some of these people have no way of transportation so i feel pretty bad for those living way up in the mountains!
After church, we broke out into our summer teams and went to lunch with an "expert" on our location! We went to Pardos with a lady named Liz (most upbeat, outgoing person you will ever meet)! There I was able to try cow heart and purple corn slushie! They were both really good!
Today we will be traveling 8 hours to Huaraz. Huaraz is a small town that is close to recuay! We will be staying in a hostel overnight and then we will pick up supplies and head out to Recuay! Pray for us as we make the trip! I am pretty nervous about the altitude change!
