Para empezar al pricipio iba un poco nervioso pero cuando llegue yo me sorprendi con la bienvenida que nos dieron, me gusto el lugar donde nos ospedaron, los juegos fueron diferentes a los de aqui porque hay otras reglas y aunque perdimos aprendimos algo nuevo, me gusto la comida en especial el "lomo saltado", hice muchas amistades pero en especial le doy las gracias a mi amigo peruano: Alessandro que me trato super bien diria yo y me gustaria corresponderle que cuando el venga ospedarlo aqui con mi familia, esto es un poco de lo mucho que disfrute en estar en Peru, Dios permita y en el futuro regresar. Muchas gracias a AELU por todo.
Emmanuel Gonzalez - Player.
I enjoyed Peru very much because it was a good experience overall. I liked specially how every time we went out to explore Peru, the moms of the Peruvian kids would come and care for us. I also liked the way the Peruvian moms were to us, they were very nice. And last it was a good experience because I made new friends.

I had alot of fun on the trip to Peru! The Peru kids were fun to play with and good at soccer too! I liked the food alot and now we go out for Lomo Saltada in Port Chester! I held a baby llama.
I was excited when my son was invited to travel with the Port Chester 99 team to Lima, Peru. Being my first time to South America, I didn't know what to expect. The AELU organization that hosted us was wonderful. The parents were some of the nicest people i have met. The environment was very safe as we stayed on the AELU campus. The campus was like an Olympic village with restaurants, a cash machine, and a dollar exchange service. There was a laundramat accross the street. It was like going to summer camp, with the parents staying in bunk beds with the kids. Besides soccer, the kids were kept busy with a game room, pool, and playgrounds. I even got to do my morning jog at their sports stadium. The food was delicious. The hosting parents organized outings for excellent restaurants, shopping, the zoo, the circus, and a traditional Inca Dance show. They even took me out to dinner for my birthday and got a birthday cake for my son. If given the opportunity, I would definitely go back to Peru again. What I liked most was the people! They are vey warm hearted!
