Since I kind of gave you the run down on the trip before I left, I figured I'll just show and tell about some of my favorite pictures!
This is a view of the Pacific Ocean from Lima:
This is a picture of the center of town in Trujillo, where we spent most of the week:
A poinsettia TREE in the yard of one of the missionary families:
Typical houses at one of our clinic sites, with the mountain we climbed one day in the background:
A typical day's set up. Just in the middle of the street in one of the neighborhoods:
The Plaza d'Armas (?) at night - in the middle of Trujillo:
While I DID eat a lot of new and interesting things, I did not eat this amazing meringue - but I was so impressed by it, it deserved a picture! Seriously, how good does that look?
At the BEACH!! This was on the last day when I attempted surfing - HA! I probably would have been better off in one of these boats from pre-incan times...
Group shot of the dental team on the beach. The perfect ending to a perfect trip!
New "delicacies" I tried:
- beef heart
- beef stomach
- Pisco Sours - my new favorite drink! I guess it's kind of like a lemon-y margarita?
This trip really was an awesome experience - to go with a few of my classmates and an awesome teacher to another country and practice everything we've learned and keep on learning some more!
I can't WAIT to go on more trips like this - hopefully my husband will be able to come next time!
