Days 28 ~ 58
Cochabamba! – here we will settle down outside the city for several weeks staying with homestay families, delving into ISP projects, and studying Spanish for approximately 16 hours a week. Known for it’s social and political activism and year-round warm climate, Cochabamba is an ideal place for us to immerse ourselves in the culture and build community. Students will have the opportunity to study weaving, traditional healing, Andean music, politics, cooking, and other potential independent study topics. We will culminate our time here by passing the celebration of Todos Santos and Day of the Dead with our host families.
Possible Weekend excursions: hike to Cerro Tunari, the highest peak in the Cochabamba region; visit to Inca Llacta, an important Incan outpost; and collaborate with a local organization that works with street kids in the arts.
