A life in technicolor

FBT is a time during the peace corps experience where you get to visit a site and do some Field based Training (FBT). I was fortunate enough to have visited Cajamarca a department in northern Peru. Sierra at 2700 meters, with sights I've never imagined.

Whisked 18 hours away from Lima, with a group I totally heart, FBT was one of the best experiences I've had yet. If I close my eyes I can still see the vibrant blues and greens that made me gasp. I ate cuy, met some cool kids, hiked the most beAutiful site I have ever seen in my life and shared in a million and one laughs. From stuffed combis, to having to share seats, laps and beds I wouldn't change a thing. There were adventures trying to kill giant mosquitos, starting bonfires and walking to the ends of the world.

FBT could not have been any other way, than ... the peace corps way.
