Day 510: A jaunt off to Armapampa

And so, we headed off into the hills with 7 of our micro-business students. We rose early, hiked about 3 hours to a lake called Armapampa, swam, ate, and hiked back again. The kids were great, full of energy, and excited to show us a new place. We can't believe that we didn't know about this hike before now, but are excited to share it with future visitors!

One of the boys brought along his horse...

Let the Carnaval celebrations begin! Immediately upon arrival at the lake, the kids kicked their shoes, rolled up their pants and forded the river out to a green pampa in the middle of the lake. And from then on, it was get soaked, or soak the others... Carnaval styes!
