An Advertisement for Ancash



"The point of a visit to Huaraz (the capitol of Ancash) is really to explore some of the most stunning scenery on the planet; the entire valley is characterized by spectacular snowcapped mountains, stunning alpine lakes, and tranquil meadows." - Frommer's Peru

Ancash doesn't really need my help... it can speak for itself:






So, yeah... that's where I'm going to be living for the next two years. I think I may be the luckiest person in the world.

I'll have more information about my site after I visit it next week. I'm really excited. I'm living in a town of only around 680 people, a 45 minute combi ride from the capitol city, and only a 40 minute walk from another PC trainee/friend. Huaraz, the capitol, is only an 8 hour bus ride from Lima and even has an airport for those who want to visit but don't want to experience the luxary of bus travel in Peru. It's a pretty amazing placement.
