A semester full of learning, service and adventure closed with a three-day retreat at a beach named Kauai. We began with final project presentations featuring research done while on service. The topics included:
- Ají Peppers
- The Day of the Dead
- The Hearing Impaired in Peru
- The Exciting World of Ceramics
- Food and Culture in the Rain Forest
- An Exercise in Dialect
- All Saints Day
- Cuy, What?
- Water, Water, Water
- The Earthquake in Yungay — 1970
- The Ashaninkas
On Sunday we worshipped, discussed each student’s service assignment and relaxed on the beach. On our last day we talked about re-entry into North American culture. Afterward we returned to Lima for one last evening before heading home.
