Cusco, Peru: Last Day in Oropesa and Last Trivia Night

Today was my last day with the kids at the orphanage in Oropesa.  The picture above is of me with Ivan, one of the kids who I worked the most with on his English.  As with most volunteer projects, I wish I could have done more, but I am glad I was there for a little while.  These kids--especially Ivan--will always hold a special place in my heart.

After I got back from Oropesa, it was time for my last Cusquenian trivia night.  Every Wednesday that I have been here, I have gone to trivia night at an ex-pat bar in Cusco, both because it's really fun and because all the proceeds go to a really great charity.  Tonight, all of the categories were holiday-themed, which, given my intense love for all thing Christmas-related, boded well for me and me team.  In fact, if you look at our team score ('No Soy Turista') above, you can see that we won!

This is my team (Joao, me, and Heather) with the bottle of wine we got as a prize for our impressive holiday knowledge.  We will certainly enjoy drinking this on Friday!
