As mentioned in my previous post, I'm going to take you with me on a little journey to Peru.  I went there back in 2004 for two months.  I wanted to go to Peru quite badly, and so went to my then college Marylhurst University, and created two courses for myself.  I selected my reading list, went down there to do independent study, and wrote a few papers afterwards.

While I learned much about the Inca's and their spirituality, and about Liberation Theology, I learned a lot more about poverty, the strength of the Peruvian people, and the limits of my tolerance level for being called gordita. 

Gordita, in spanish, basically translates as a cross between fatty and honey.  But I tell you what, I don't care what you cross fatty with, it doesn't sound any nicer.
