About this trip
Why go Mark wants to be an international business person focusing on Latin America. Therefore, it is very important for him to understand the culture and language. That is only possible by being immersed in the Latin American culture.
Why International Business Laura and Mark both love to learn about other cultures and Mark wants to switch careers to business. International business is a great way to fully live what we both want.
Why Latin America Laura and Mark have both had many Latin American friends and have learned to love the culture. Another reason is Spanish. Mark wanted to learn the most widely used language other than English. Mandarin is common but is somewhat limited to one country (China). Spanish was the clear choice, and is also the one that we both have wanted to learn for years.
Why Peru Mark started his Latin American experience in Argentina, and Peru is a very different country and so is a great way to continue the learning. Peru shows a very different view of Latin America.
Why Lima

The first place I stayed in South America (Libertador San Martin, Argentina) is a very small peaceful college town and was a great place to start. I chose Lima, in part, because I want exposure to different South American situations. Lima is a very large and populated city (~8 million) so the experience is bound to be very different and a great addition to my South American learning.
