Jessica A Whitfill, Summer 2016 Participant
My favorite part of this program was visiting Mundo Libre. To see how a program such as the one set up in this facility sparked an interest in exploring more of the options we have like it here in the United States.

The most rewarding element of this program was honestly the cultural immersion and learning so much about the history. I took Spanish here at KU and I would definitely recommend having some exposure in order to feel more comfortable on this trip. A large focus of the Spanish courses here at KU are the cultural aspects, hearing it all from a professor here, and actually visiting South America and seeing it all in action is inspiring and beautiful. There was also a decent amount of hiking/walking around in ruins, getting to the top of the hill between Machu Picchu and Wayna Picchu was so rewarding-- just like the surreal views!

Having some exposure to Spanish would definitely make you feel more comfortable in most environments. I would also say future students should take care of themselves before they leave for the trip. I started out a bit sick, and it was hard to get back to feeling well, especially when we arrived in Cusco, at a fairly high elevation. The best advice I can give would be to relax, go with the flow, and remain flexible, a lot can happen with all of the traveling, but staying organized and calm will only help the process along.
