I’m leaving for Peru on Wednesday, June 17th! I have been never been so excited for a trip! I’m planning on touring Cuzco for about a week (seeing Machu Picchu!!!, the main plaza, the Inca museum, nearby sites, etc.) and then taking a tourist bus down to southern Peru which is where my project is located. If I have time, I hope to see the ancient site of Tiwanaku while I’m in southern Peru. I will be surveying and excavating a hilltop site for about 5 weeks while also working on my second research project which deals with the tombs that are located in the proximity of the site. I will be traveling for about 2 months which is the longest I’ve been away from home. I’m psyched!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
