I have about a month and two weeks to go.

Still utterly incompetent in the language.

But very much excited to love the people of Peru.

I talked to my cousin, Maurya, who served in NJ, for roughly six hours last night. About everything, but mostly about serving, and how much you love those you serve, and the wide ranges of faith and religion you come across.

Fact about Peru: Peru’s independence day is July 28, celebrating the separation from Spanish rule. Absolute independence was gained in 1824.
