Hi from the Rice Chapter! | Nourish International

June 21, 2014 | Posted in 2014, Peru, Rice, Summer Projects | By

Hello! We are so excited to be on our way to Iquitos, Peru soon. We’ll be working with Project Amazonas in the Santa Cruz forest reserve for 5 weeks, helping to improve the latrine plumbing system and a little bit with education.

We’re leaving this Sunday and will be in our field station by Tuesday after spending a night in Lima, then in Iquitos. Hopefully there won’t be any complications with all the travel, especially when we arrive in Lima (since we’ll be arriving on 3 different flights). Once we’re in Iquitos, we’ll be meeting with the coordinator for Project Amazonas who we’ve been emailing like crazy for the past few weeks.

We’re a bit worried because we’ll be working with a community along the Amazon River, so we won’t have internet access on a regular basis (until we make the boat ride/trek to the mainland to find an internet cafe). We’re hoping that we can schedule that once a week so we can update the blog and keep in touch with NINO and our parents, but no guarantees. The UNM chapter is there (in a different community) right now, and apparently they’ve been using payphones to communicate – we might have to do that as well.

In any case, we’re all very excited about the trip and can’t wait to be able to give new updates!
