New Year, New City, New Challenges

11 February 2012

This month has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. If leaving the familiarity of Ica behind and leaving all the friends I have made was hard, then moving to Lima has been tougher.  The capital city is home to 8 million residents, the roads have 4 lanes, and the buses are packed. The long daily […]

Hannah in Peru

After some language training to improve my Spanish I will be taking up the role of Short Term Coordiantor (STC) for Peru. The STC coordinates the Latin Link Step (teams) and Stride (people) programmes, placing them in projects lasting from a few weeks to two years. Based in Arequipa, I will be getting involved in a local church and my local community.
