|The last four and a half months in Chachapoyas have been a truly unique experience.
Teaching at the International Language Center has been really rewarding as I’ve watched the progress of my students and built meaningful relationships with them.
The Chachapoyan community is wonderful and friendly, the city is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery on all sides, and the bakeries have some of the best cream-filled donuts and apple tarts I've ever tasted! Also, there are a lot of single and multi-day excursions to places like Levanto, Kuelap, Huancas, and Gocta that are great weekend fillers. And the longer breaks between terms allow for further travel. My trip to Iquitos with Vanessa was amazing!
I would definitely recommend Chachapoyas and the ILC for those who are looking for a great Peruvian experience off the well worn Gringo trail.
