Number 1: After exams it would only seem appropriate to take a nice 5-day trip to Lima!
Number 2: Take a nice break from it all and head to the beach to take in some sun! If you are fortunate like many of us were, instead of our plan to relax at the beach, some men will stop you and offer you surfing lessons! They will spend the whole day teaching you how to surf and you can expect yourself to be very tired and sore at the end of your lesson.
Number 3: After some time lounging around it would be imprudent not to go around and learn a little about the city. So, be sure to visit some of the major landmarks in the city!
Number 4: Wake up the next morning, and just get on a yacht with your group! Oh yes! A yacht! Take a nice little cruise on the ocean until you spot sea lions! The only logical thing to do from here is to put on a lifejacket and jump into the freezing cold water and swim with these cute little creatures. If you are lucky you might be able to find a sea urchin and take a picture with it! Oh, be sure to put sunblock on because the majority of my amigos got BURNED!
Number 5: To finish up your stay.. how about you go to a water show in one of the parks in Lima! There are plenty of fountains with unique names and interesting stories. Later at night, there is a light/water show where pictures and short films are projected onto the water!! It is quite the sight!
Number 6: Travel over to the Lima airport to board the plane at 1 am. Travel for seven odd hours into Atlanta. Arrive to Atlanta flustered and in a rush because your next flight leaves for Grand Rapids in 40 minutes. Make the plane in spite the many doubts and arrive in your parents' arms soon after.
That is (more or less) How to successfully end a FANTASTIC adventure! We have learned so much about the country, each other and ourselves through this trip! God has given us the opportunity to share his love with others and also experience his love from people in South America.
