Belle Vernon Students in Peru

Students took a train and then hiked to the top of Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas and one of the Wonders of the World. The students climbed the ancient site known as Ollantaytambo, in the Sacred Valley and toured the towns of Cuzco and Puno. Then they visited the Korikancha Temple, Fortress of Sacsayhuaman and Cuzco Cathedral.

They also explored the capital, Lima and discovered the area of Miraflores on the Pacific coast. The students were able to practice their Spanish speaking skills to order their food and shop in the local markets. Lastly, students took a boat ride on Lake Titicaca and had the opportunity to interact with the native people who still live on the islands. The students had a great time learning about another culture and are looking forward to the next trip that the teacher is taking to Costa Rica.

Students that made the trip were: Mikey Danto, Sydney Decurtis, Atacie Eversburg, Jackson Guess, Kaitlyn Helton, Jackson Jewell, Gianna Laurita, Mia Lubrani, Malena Rodriguez, Ian Shahan, Sarah Smith, Sam West.
