Justin arrived in August 2017 and will stay until May 2018 !
We have a new team!
After celebrating Intiwawa’s 10-year anniversary, we decided now is a good moment to bring fresh wind into our work.
Buy Chapstick!!! Buy sunscreen!! Always put on sunscreen. Wear sneakers. Wear sunglasses. Buy mangos. Eat with pancakes, oatmeal, smoothies, quinoa. Haggle with taxi drivers. Haggle with market vendors. Haggle with pharmacist. Lose to pharmacist. Plant cactus. Enjoy cactus. Think about Spanish. Learn past perfect. Get used to traffic. Take combi. Wash socks. Text family. Sit in sun. Drink coffee. Look at mountains. Look at mountains!! Look at sun on mountains. Look at sun setting on mountains. Look at pink purple blue orange clouds behind mountains. Feel tiny. Feel existential. Feel independent. Feel past present future. Feel possibilities.
On the Saturday before Halloween, we threw a BANGIN’ party for the San Isidro community. We took the holiday as an opportunity to reach out to the community at large and to get our dang spook on, and what ensued was a joyful, energetic, sugar-fueled and love-based celebration.
