It is quite odd to go from the dead of winter right into the middle of a hot, sunny summer! Can’t say I’m complaining for even a minute! Our university classes don’t begin until March 10th, so there is quite a bit of time to get acquainted with Arequipa until then- and as I’ve promised many readers (especially those reading from the U.S.), this is the fastest way you can stay updated! Thanks for all the well-wishing on my journey- I’ve arrived to Arequipa safely after over 27 hours of being awake and in and out of airports, buses, and airplanes…but I had the whole day to rest, unpack, and unwind after a lovely welcoming breakfast hosted by the university for us three arriving this week– if that’s not a good sign for these next few months at the university, then I don’t know what is!
Until next time- thanks for reading!
