Peru – Interactive Cultural Adventure

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

This is a five day trip that changes everyones lives! You are invited to join a small team that will be building cooking stoves in the highland villages of Peru. Most Peruvian women in these villages still cook in a mud hut with poor ventillation and soot soaked walls balancing their pots on stones above open flames. This trip immerses you into true Peruvian culture that you won’t see while out with your tour groups, yet due to the schedule, you are able to incorporate it into a longer holiday if you wish.

You arrive back in Cajamarca Friday afternoon.

Under The Littlest Big Top

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

Big Apple Circus Everyone knows how much fun the Big Apple Circus is, that is if they’ve had the opportunity to attend the show. Jugglers, thrilling acrobats, exciting trapeze atists, balancing acts, small animal acts, horses, mime, the greatest clowns ever, and, lots of audience participation. All done to a backdrop of incredible music sculpted to every move. That’s just a taste of what you get under the big top.

How many of you are aware that along with the happiness generated under the tent, the Big Apple Circus, as a non-profit organization, offers community programs? These special features allow the Big Apple experience to be shared with healthcare facilities and outreach programs throughout the areas they visit.

The Big Apple Circus is currently in Boston through May 10, then moves to Queens, New York from May 16-31. To view their schedule, learn about the outreach programs, or donate, CLICK: http://www.bigapplecircus.org/
