Orientation Training – Huancayo, Peru

Its been a whirlwind week for Suzanne, a week that began in Ghana, and ends in Peru (she set foot four continents in five days).  We are both in Peru for Orientation Training with The Mission Society. 

We arrived in Lima last night were we met at the airport with the rest of the team coming and then all caught an overnight bus to Huancayo, where we will be staying these two weeks.  I had thought that an eight-hour bus trip up to the central highlands of Peru would be a torturous trip, but it turned out to be a great way to get here, as we both fell asleep quickly, and woke to the beauty of the sun rising over the Mantaro Valley.   

It is great to be back with our friends from previous trainings with The Mission Society, and to meet new ones.   It is colder than we expected, and the altitude will take a few days to get used to but it is fun exploring a new city, and learning a bit about the culture.

Our “half-star” hotel is the Confort Hotel, located just off the Plaza de Constitucion, and very much in the midst of the noise of the city with the sounds of traffic, car alarms, horns, emergency vehicles sirens and that is just during the daytime.  Who knows what night will bring?  Still is good to be with Suzanne, and the fact that we are experiencing a new continent even better.

Looks cool! Always love to follow your travels. Hey, thanks for adding me to your links! I'll be in "your" continent next week, when J-M and I head to Costa Rica to celebrate our anniversary!
