Hi, This Is Alex, And These Are Some Of My Favorite Places In Cusco!
The Meeting Place Cafe
The Meeting Place is my all-time favorite place to get breakfast in Cusco. EVER. The waffles are amazing! They also have delicious cakes and awesome cupcakes. A cat lives at the The Meeting Place too. Her name is Socks. She likes to snuggle up on the furniture and in people's laps.
You Should Definitely Go There!!!
CORASON is where we have been volunteering. It is an after-school program for kids in Cusco. Some of the kids are really little, a few are older than me, and lots in between. Club CORASON is a very cool place on the side of a mountain. Kids go there to hang out after school because it is safe and has games and activities.
This week Leah and I helped mom teach an English lesson. They are learning about different jobs and this week was waiter/waitress. We wrote a script and acted out a skit for the class. We did it twice so they really got to hear the words and then they did an activity with mom.
The club is a charity connected with "The Meeting Place Cafe" which is how we found out about it. We pretty much get to play the entire time and there are lots of dogs hanging around. The kids are all really nice, even though half of them act like they just had a bucket of sugar :P
South American Explorers Club (SAE)
SAE Is the place where we're staying for the rest of our time in Cusco. We Have been staying here for more than 2 months! I really like it here. We bought extra mattresses so that we could all sleep in one room. The shower is usually hot and doesn't give us an electrical shock - yippee! They have very nice rooms, a cool garden, a big library, DVDs, and a kitchen! (My moms favorite part). Im really glad we are staying here, and I'm going to be sad when we leave
Cusco is great. I hope you get a chance to visit here!
