I'm a Foreign Service Officer and Pickering alumna. I'm not sure where life is taking me but stick around and we'll find out together.

When the high is supposed to be 80 degrees back home, you don't wear a coat. Period. Here I made the mistake of assuming things would be the same. Unfortunately highs of 80 in Cochabamba mean lows in the 30s - no laughing matter in a place where buildings aren't often heated. Wish me luck tonight when we visit a very rural town with a very rustic hotel. I'm praying for hot water, lots of blankets and a space heater. And next time I travel I'm bringing my long johns and my coat. 80 degrees or no!
