Welcome to the CHP ICST Peru Blog

Hello, this is Jeff Merrick…some of you may know me, some may not. I put together this blog at Elizabeth’s request so as you travel through Peru you can post your comments and thoughts about the experience. I have created an account for each of you to be authors on this blog; you will recieve your username and password via e-mail before you leave. I’m going to quickly explain how to post (it’s really simple) and later I will post a tutorial on how to upload images and include them in your posts. So to make a post to the blog, just click the “Login” link on the right and enter your username and password. Once you login, you will notice a “Write” link at the top. Just go there, give your post a title, a category (most likely “Travel Notes”), and write your post. When you’re ready to put it up on the blog just click the “Publish” button. I’m sure you’re all technically savvy, so this should be no trouble for you. If you have any technical questions feel free to post it as the form of a comment to this post, or e-mail me at jmerrick@uiuc.edu.
Good luck and have a great trip!

    Hello to all Peruvian participants!

    I want to tell you all (and especially my niece Meghan) that I am EXTREMELY jealous of your trip! I want to join you! Such sights as Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca, Incan sites, places I can only dream of visiting, you will be experiencing firsthand. At times I’m sure it will be like being whisked back in a time machine. Enjoy and absorb it all! Take tons of pix and don’t forget to post some. Above all, be safe, stay away from politics (touchy subject down there I’m told) but otherwise fully immerse yourselves in a truly once in a lifetime trip!

    All the best-
