On the first night I wondered back to my room to grab my harmonica with another girl in the program. I sat outside her room waiting for her and playing a little bit, note that I have minimal experience. Suddenly a woman and her child came and sat in front of me. Then another child, a man, an elder, another young man and more children came and sat in front of me. An impromptu concert playing an instrument I have very little experience with in front of people with a semi-significant language barrier! AHH! I went with it though. I played for about a half hour and then the elder wanted to talk to me. I could not understand most of what he was saying but I figured it was a universal idea of simply listening to your elders with an open heart. I was comfortably uncomfortable.

What  I wouldn't do to be that uncomfortable again. I do appreciate being back here in the U.S. and my opportunities with my studies, but damn, it was nice there. I guess the two feet of snow outside doesn't help. I even ski and snowboard its just, there is something about that Peruvian air. Mmmm.... I'm truly starting to miss it in a way I did not anticipate. It's almost worst than home sickness because I do not know the next time I will be able to return. I hope to write more...
