1st Peru Trip January 11-17th 2010

After much hard work: fundraising, logistics, communications, scheduling, researching, etc.
We finally had Adrian Frias, and myself, Rosaura Estrada go to Peru.

The link above will show you our pictures and videos.
We met so many people and found out so many crucial information.
It truly was a blessing meeting so many positive and enthusiastic people.
Within one week I learned an immense amount: how a community deals with problems, how the municipality of Paracas distributes water, how much the people suffer from lack of water, a little about how the pipping and storage system for water works, how the government interacts with its community and surrounding businesses, how the culture of a country can resonate beautifully from its food to its music to its people. And I also learned that there are so many people out there like Dr. Ellzey or Steve Crowell cheering for us and helping us meet our goals of helping communities internationally.
I can't wait for the summer.
I invite everyone and anyone to learn more about this beautiful movement that is taking place at UT Austin: Engineering students using their knowledge and skills to positively impact communities around the world.

To the Peru team: I hope everyone is as enthusiastic and ready as I am.

These people need our help and like Mr. Armando Estrada (Community Relations Chair of Pluspetrol) said, we are the future and its up to us. They are here to help us to learn and do as much as we can.

Nunca Pierdan las ganas. NEVER loose that perseverance and motivation to help others.
