My Travel Story

by: Kelly Hines Start Date: Apr 12, 2018 - End Date: Jun 10, 2018
Throughout ten weeks this summer I will be staying in Peru, specifically Lima for the mostpart.  I will be doing research and service with sustainable agriculture and engineering.  I really hope that this will bring a ne w perspective to a degree that I already love, and that this will make me a more well rounded scientist and technician as I participate in assembly and engineering research.  I went to Ecuador in January and made a lot of connections with families and places in a very short amount of time and I am very excited to see what may come out of this experience since it is for a longer period.  

While I am in Peru I would love the opportunity to go to Machu Picchu.  Machu Picchu is one of the 7 great wonders of the world and a UNESCO world heritage site.  I am sure that I would regret not going if I ended up skipping this opportunity while I am in Peru.  I will be keeping a blog, and will be trying to keep family members as updated as possible while I am away.  In lieu of any birthday celebrations this May, I will be accepting contributions in behalf of this trip.  

A huge thank you to anyone who wanders onto this page or contributes to my once in a lifetime experience!!!
