Little Chloe's intrepid traveller guide!
Helooooooooooooo Im still here. Sorry its taken so long but i have no more free time!! Its been a crazy few weeks. Next week will be even worse as half of the volunteers are being relocated to different centers or have finished, so theres only gonna be 4 of us next week! Were all gonna have to start doing more lessons and me and danielle have to take over the pregnant girls class- from 3-6 volunteers do education/activities with young pregnant girls ages 11-19. Theres one girl who just had her 2ND baby last week, and shes only 15. Its really sad, because some of the girls have been raped by members of their family, and abortion is illegal in peru. Then they get basically thrown oiut of their families because their obviously not virgins anymore, and their families are shamed. Anyway, onto a brighter topic-We, (me, nana-finland, juan carlos-spain/ireland, Kyle and marcy-us) have all come down to pacasmayo for the weekend as its the end of term, and bank holiday on monday!!WOO!!! were staying at this hotel, which would go as far as saying is luxury!! Me and juan carlos were jumping up and down, looking in the minibar, turning on the TV, was SO exciting. its CLEAN!! Even got the maid to take pics of us posing in the room. We literally step out of the hotel, and are on the beach!! Just had chicken for lunch at a really cheap restaurant, only to find out i was eating chicken heart!mmhmmm. Am now feeling a bit sick. Im sure it will pass. Went out last night to this 'club' which is basically in a warehouse, but theres men in black ties handing out free chicken wings and beer??!! Was a good night. Managed to fit TEN in a taxi, have photographic evidence to prove it. Was absolutely HILARIOUS. Must be a new world record. The students had their tests thursday- which i had to prepare! My class are all really sweet, and took me out for drinks after the test and they wouldnt let me pay anything! And they were all asking if im gonna be teaching them next term (starting tues). Such a good teacher . . . . really quite like it, feel v.intelligent and powerful teaching people who are like at least 10yrs older than me!!lol Another one of my students who works in a travel agency is coming round on monday to take me to a festival thing, with music, and a fruit shrine(?) and much more . . . ANYWHO, gotta go, love u all!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
