Fun fact: During the trip, we went to mass at the only parish run by Opus Dei! The church is BEAUTIFUL! Worth a visit!

Thank gooooooodness Maggie took the map and became our guide. Anyone dealing with me and directions will understand this one! The neighborhood that our hostel was in was AMAZING: great coffee shops, clothes shopping, donut shops, tea shops…everything was lovely!

Day 2: Willis Tower

So of course I’ll miss Taylor quite a ton, but I might not miss her joking about how this gringa will handle her overpacking madness. It’s funny because it’s true though..I’ll give her credit where credit is due.

I’m writing from Arequipa, Peru next. I love everyone and everything for getting me to this point…if you’re wondering how I feel right now. Just pretty excited and happy and so, so blessed.

A sweet, kind woman passed up to heaven and she’ll be missed dearly by many, and received warmly by even more!  Though I did not see Great Aunt Joanie as often as one would’ve liked, I do cherish the memories we’ve had. She was a giving, hilarious, loving person who will always hold a special spot in my heart as a relative-grandma figure who was always great fun to be around! Below are photos from the trip.
