Yesterday we took about a 2-3 hour bus ride up to some beautiful glacier fed lakes. It was overcast, and a bit chilly, but still absolutely beautiful. We sampled guinea pig, boiled potatoes, boiled corn and cheese. We hiked for a little over an hour.
On the way back into Huaraz we stopped for ice cream. Dinner was Pollo a la Brasa, with brownies for dessert. Then we went into town and did a little shopping. Mostly stocking up on warm hats, socks and scarves. It's going to be cold out there on the trail!
Today we are going to visit a local spanish speaking church. This afternoon we are going to visit an orphanage, and take another short hike. Tomorrow is the big day, we head out on our trek. We will be on the trail until Thursday.
Thank you for your continued prayers. The team is doing great. We are having a great time experiencing the culture and getting to know each other. Pray for continued safety. Pray that God would be glorified in everything that we say and do.
