Well day 2 has been interesting after a bad night & waking at 4.am its been another long day.Very hard to get used to the noise when you have windows (oh no not windows) shutters & doors that dont fit the holes that where made for them. It was very cold last night , I had 3 indian blankets which seemed to be heavy rather than warm. All part of the experience.
Plus the firecrackers get up very early ! I have been to two placements this morning, one is a privately funded home for all types of people all ages, abandoned children and alcoholics. Im thinking can I do tjis as its what we would call squalor I have never seen so many beds in one room, plus some share about 40 in all in not much different to a normal house size, not that they look normal houses.
Next was an orphanage attached to a private clinic it is for mentally & physically handicapped children from birth to about 10. Oh my god how lucky are we all, I stayed for a couple of hours and surprised myslf. We had to help with giving lunch they need as many as they can get for this, learn how to duck, as some of them are allowed to attept feeding themselves. I had a little boy that I feed , so sad but managed to get it into him. They all go for bath change of clothes after lunch if that gives you an idea. More places to see tommorow.
At 1.30 I went of on a tour of Cusco hence all the pictures, arrived back at 7.pm. Had a very eventful day today, hardly time to eat. Full on again tommorow.
Well hope that gives you an idea of what my life is like at the moment, but I am enjoying it. 9.30 now off to bed for me hoing I have a better night. Think its all that cocoa tea making me hyper. I am really pleased that I havent suffered to badly with the allititude, especially as I went up in the mountains today. Finbers crossed it will last.
Bet your starting to think wish I hadnt told you about my blog !!! Love and miss you all. Oh yes going to find out about my Spanish lessons tommorow. Ugh. Adios Amigos. xx
