Get clean

First, I added a few more pictures of my enviromental charla and of some cuys (precooked) and of our group photo – note the supersweet bigotes. Second, before I head off into the sunset to discover my new site, I thought I´d leave you with a little tidbit about something I love here in Peru. The people in my neighborhood and from what I can tell, people all over, love to water their dirt. Every day my mom goes outside with a big bucket to water the dirt. If we are walking around town, for no reason that I can fathom she will stop in a particular spot (note: it is dusty EVERYWHERE, we live on a big mountain made of dirt and rock) and say, “what dust, so and so really ought to water their dirt today”. Another gem is when people go out in front of their house to sweep the dirt. They don´t sweep it off of a porch or stoop or anything, they just sweep the earth, to get rid of the top layer of dirt to get to the dirt underneath. Go figure.

I´m off. Mom and Dad and Steven and Michael, I hope you had a great trip! I love you and miss you and will try calling this week if I have a chance.
