    Travel Journal from United States Massachusetts, United States | Tue Feb 01, 2011

    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 …

    So I'm back in the snow and cold, dreaming of hammocks and banana trees. The first day of classes was a snow day already! It's strange to sit behind desks in classrooms again with blank walls and unenthusiastic classmates who are just in class to fulfill a general education requirement.

    Travel Journal from Peru Rural Areas, Peru | Fri Jan 21, 2011

    I’m home. I’ve spent the past few days unpacking, doing laundry, and repacking, as I get ready to go back to school. Looking at the snow banks outside my window, it’s hard to believe that I was in Peru earlier this week, eating passion fruit fresh off the tree, and I have definitely experienced a bit of culture shock.
