If you are reading this you probably already know what is going on. If not – and maybe even if you do – the About page provides a brief introduction.
I wish I could write tailored emails to everyone but I know that will not be possible. I will do my best to include pictures and keep the text pithy to help readers who are like me (my attention span is that of a peanut, aka none). This blog will be a great challenge for me because I am an extremely slow writer and prone to rambling – I also did not realize how difficult it is to write for a wider audience.
I will learn how to describe the incredible sights, sounds, tastes, emotions, and thoughts I will encounter in (when did this happen) five days. Sensory overload – ye olde frenemy.
I am not used to sharing my life like this and personal blogs seem self-indulgent, but I know that this is getting out of my comfort zone in a good way. I am just happy that anyone would take their time to read about this experience.
Thank you to my family, friends, and coworkers for the support and encouragement as well as the part of my brain that makes a surprise appearance from time to time to make sound decisions. I am so, so glad this is finally happening.
P.S. The blog title is a combination of my name and Arequipa, where I am headed. Another working title was The Perube Goldberg Project to signify how I over-complicate simple things.
