World Thinking Day Ideas: Peru

Lima was a big city – gritty, but full of life and light. There we first understood the country of contrasts we had stepped into – where the city, the ocean, and the desert converge.

World thinking day ideas for girl scouts

Girl Scouts in Peru:

Back in Lima, we had two opportunities to interact with other Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. …At the end of the evening we got to talk, really sing, with one of the Peruvian troops. They sang to us, and then we sang to them, and it was one of my favorite parts of the night. At the campfire we got a chance to practice our Spanish, sing and dance some more. We discovered we had more things in common than I expected: a love for Lady Gaga, Facebook, and singing silly Girl Scout songs… We weren’t just tourists, we were Girl Scouts and I now know I have sisters all around the world, not just at home.
