Maria's Journey to Peru

Current Location

Lima, Peru 

Hola! Hello! My name is Maria Perez and I am studying Peruvian culture and the history of the Inca in Lima, Peru. I cannot wait to share these experiences and more with all of you!


This past weekend I got to go to the Amazon Jungle! While there, I saw some of the coolest animals in the world. 


Because Lima is such a large city, this means that not everyone knows each other. It also means that there are many different communities. I have had the good fortune to build my own community here!

Field Notes

This week I had the opportunity to sit down and interview one of my Peruvian friends. She also goes to the Universidad del Pacifico and has shown me around the city. Let's take a look at her journey! 


Let's take a trip to Cusco! The Incan capital is located in the Andean mountains, at an elevation of 11,152 feet. Cusco is one of the oldest cities in the Americas. Let's take a look!
