On Sunday we attended church where there was a few little poems and songs by some of the kids...very sweet! After church we went with our host family and attended a bbq with their entire family out in Yumina...a pueblo outside of Arequipa. It was a wonderful afternoon and we while we missed our own moms, we were glad we could spend it with our surrogate family here. We ate lots of food (including beef heart...yikes), Kai loved playing in the yard and watering with our madre, Juana. We also had the most beautiful view of the Incan andenes...can you believe they still use them for agriculture now...those Incans sure made things to last! Tyson was telling me he learned that they are always green because somehow the Incans figured out how to tap into the underground water source so they are always watered....amazing! It is aways so wonderful to experience the culture and learn more about their past!
Juana's mom who very much reminds us of Tyson's grandma
