The mountains instead!
I just got an email saying that the interns assigned to the regions of Ucayali and San Martin have been relocated to “la sierra”, the mountains! This will definitely change my packing list, good thing I’ve hardly packed and I leave tomorrow morning. Exciting, I think!
All that I’ve heard is that we’ll be in the mountains, I don’t know the region but I do know it could be pretty cold (high 20s counts as quite chilly in my opinion). I guess it’s just as well, my hair does not agree with humidity. I guess I’ll just have to roll with it and see what happens, and bring lots of fleece jackets and socks, maybe handwarmers too. I may need to send mail by sled so I apologize for any snow-damaged mail ahead of time. I’ll tell the llamas to be careful as they carry my letters.
I’ll add more if I get more information later today.
