So, I made it to Peru in the end after what seemed to be a 3-week plane journey, finally ending up at Cusco on Saturday morning. The weather is awesome at the moment and not too cold at night time, although apparently the rain is on it´s way! (I didn´t pack my umbrella). I´m currently staying in a shared house with other volunteers in the centre of Cusco, loads of cool people from various countries (although I´ve yet to meet a fellow English person).
My Construction placement started on Monday morning. At 8:00am, we take a Combi (bus) up the mountain to a village on the outskirts of Cusco. There´s about 8 volunteers and 1 site-foreman helping to build a school for the people of Tika Tika in Cusco.
