旅行服务

秘鲁

秘鲁6月, 来自澳门永利贵宾会郡的7名学生和2名教师与全球意识组织一起前往秘鲁库斯科,进行为期9天的使命,以各种方式帮助村民. 他们住在一个介于寄宿学校和孤儿院之间的“albergue”里. 来自库斯科郊外农村的学生从周一到周五都来albergue上学, as there are no schools in their villages. Our students worked with them on English 和 computer skills, 和 did some maintenance work around the albergue.  他们的主要工作项目是在农村学生的家中建造土坯炉灶.  Families in these villages live in one room adobe huts, with a central fire for heating 和 cooking, which is not very efficient, 和 produces a lot of pollution in the home.  土坯炉建在墙上,烟从窗口冒出来.  The adobe holds the heat even when there is not a fire going.  The trip was capped off with a day trip to Machu Picchu, 这座建于15世纪的印加城堡坐落在海拔近8000英尺的山脊上.
