Made it to Arequipa

Well, we actually didn't a 2 hour delay at the airport, which was an answer to prayer.

We arrived in Arequipa around 5:30, where members of the Extreme Team picked us up, and we all loaded our luggage and everyone into a little bus that took us to the language school we will be going to for the next 3 months. Our host families picked us up and took us to our homes.

Our family is very nice. We slept for about 1.5 hours, and then we ate breakfast. It was very good. Then we slept more! We then got ready and ate lunch, which is usually the big meal of the day in Peru at 2:00. We had a Chinese & Peruvian fusion. It was much like fried rice but with better flavor. It was very good.

Then we took a taxi to meet with some from the Extreme office, got a feel of traveling around the city on a bus from the school to the Extreme office. Then we went out to eat at a place called El Tablone, where we had some very good rotisserie type chicken. We just got back the house to go to bed.

We will meet everyone at the Extreme office in the morning at 9:30, where we will be split up to go to one of the churches we've been assigned to for worship. We're told that services in Peru are long, which will be different than American culture.

We start language school on Monday! No rest for the weary.
