I will be performing my Community Health Nursing clinical in Piura, Peru from June 24th-July 24th. Before my life changing experience begins, I will be traveling to Cusco, Machu pichhu and Lima to see the sights with four other nursing students. I look forward to this life changing experience and will try to share it with you as much as I can.

Here is me standing on the ruins of Pisaq. The actual ruins are behind me, that is a modern Peruvian village below, but I just love the scenic view.
Ollantaytambo Standing about midway up the terrace ruins.
Marquette nurses at MachuPicchu!! You can see the sun slowly starting to touch HuanyaPicchu
Above: Me at the top of MachuPicchu. Yes that is HuanyaPicchu in the background! Below: the view of the Inca ruins of MachuPicchu and HuanyaPicchu mountain from the top of MachuPicchu! Absolutely beautiful! I am about 10,000 feet above sea level. Oh and yes that little edge just drops straight down.
