- Visit nearby Puno/Lake Titicaca this weekend
- One last week of class next week
- Visit nearby Colca Canyon next weekend
- Flight to Lima followed by bus to Puerto, both Sunday April 6
The two weekend trips are pretty essential. There are "local" attractions that we hadn't gotten around to visiting, but more than that, we are so antsy to go that we just don't know how well we'd do sitting around in our room all weekend. Lake Titicaca, by the way, is the highest navigable lake in the world and the largest lake in South America. Colca Canyon is about twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. Both should be pretty fascinating.
We are ready to go but also content with the decision to stay another week. Tim is working hard on fine tuning a few things in class, and I am spending my days at home in personal retreat- resting, reading, praying. It probably sounds bizarre that I need this, but somehow I was just worn out. I think more than anything I needed the intentionality of retreat. I want to arrive in Puerto Supe rested, full, and ready. I feel that happening more and more each day as I purposefully set aside time for renewal.
