During the trip we participated in many activities that is probably unique to the Span 204 maymester. Within the first weekend, we saw ancient Incan ruins and climbed down an entire mountain. Although I did not necessarily enjoy the mountain climbing while in the process, I can say that I am glad that I had the experience (which I can say now that I am safely on the ground J). During the trip I did many things that I would have otherwise never had done and that I would never have to courage to do. One of my favorite trips during the month in Peru was definitely the trip to the sand dunes in Ica. After weeks of site seeing and informational tours, the sand dunes were definitely a refreshing end to the Peru Maymester. Despite some minor injuries, I think that we all really enjoyed this trip the most and that we all had the time of our lives. The sand dunes were both beautiful and impressive. The rides through the sand dunes, in addition were invigorating and is something I would definitely do again. I felt very lucky that I was able to experience many of the things that I did on this trip, especially visiting Machu Picchu and thoroughly enjoyed my time in Peru.
