Our team leaders will meet us in Lima on the 31st and have an adventurous culture-filled week planned in Puerto Supe. We start language school in Arequipa Nov. 7.
We have 5 large duffel bags, 2 carry-ons, a computer, and 2 instruments left. It's amazing to me all the things I don't need in order to live. We filled up another bag yesterday of clothes for Goodwill.
On another topic, vegetarian life has been delightful. I'm pretty sure from now on I'll be a vegetarian (plus fish) at home. No ethical issues with meat, though, so I fully intend to enjoy steaks at restaurants. Plus we'll be living with a host family for the next 4 months or so, and I don't plan demanding vegetarian fare.
