Blogging from Peru....

Well, in case you missed the memo, this blog will be a bit sparse the rest of the month because I am in South America. In Peru, to be exact, in a bungalow in Chosica where a peacock cries outside my window and a rooster announces each hour's passing. (I think he's timing-impaired.) I have plenty to write, but little time to pull it into some kind of sense. During the days, I'm teaching English to a small group of delightful Peruvians; evenings are filled with three-way conversations in Spanish, English, and sign language, with laughter filling in the gaps. I'm exhausted, I'm exhilerated, I'm overwhelmed, I'm homesick, and I want to stay here forever...all at the same time. It keeps me too busy to write much (at least, in blog format) because I need to absorb and process it all.

Besides, I have internet access for only a short time, and don't expect to be online after tomorrow until I return to the States at the beginning of February.

So--here's the official announcement/update/preview of things to come. I won't be posting much, if at all, until after February 1st. But then expect to hear a bit about the trip, and a lot about how travel makes us--and our words--more alive. Ciao!

:) Cheryl
