Day 2

Hey folks,
On our second day here in Peru we woke up and immediately went to the local high school where we got to experience a little bit of what school was like each morning and were also introduced to the students. They ranged from kids from 5-16 years old. Next we had breakfast at the hotel made by a gentleman who works there. After breakfast some of us carried buckets of sand up the mountain while the rest of us carried heavy black pipes that were to be used as replacements for the current water pipes. They were very heavy!! We them climbed further up the mountain and helped the college students who were heading the project filter water using sand. Then we had lunch at the  same lady's restaurant. The food was incredible and all of us were amazed at the many flavors.  Next we started digging trenches where the future pipes would go, for the pipes that are carrying water to the village currently are very thin and have many holes in them.  They new pipes are very durable and are expected to last for a very long time. Then we went over to the school and played volleyball with the children. Surprisingly they were really really good and we were creamed. Then we went for dinner and again had the AMAZING food. After dinner we went back to the hotel and bonded.
That's all for now!
