One Week till Arrival!!!
Exactly one week from now I will be in Lima, Peru. This past week I have began the process of packing, wisely choosing what I will and will not take with me! Earlier this morning I met with a woman my dad works with. She studied abroad to Peru in 2007 and shared some helpful tips with me. After meeting with her and talking to my friend Laura who studied abroad last year, I feel that I am prepared in the sense that I know what I am bringing, I have written down important numbers I will need, and I have reserached enough information about the country. On the other hand, I do not think I am quite mentally prepared yet. Some days I will be really excited and can't wait to spend four months in another country. Other days I feel sad to leave my friends and family behind and I am nervous about everything that could possibly go wrong. However, I am trying to have an optimistic attitude and am going to make the best possible experience out of this!
