VOLUNTEERING IN CUSCO

Kim´s Story of Volunteering in Cusco with Loki this Week....
Lucre, Monday 12 July
We visited children in Lucre today. After handing out juice and milk to patient waiting lines of thirsty children we got down and dirty with the kids - drawing and colouring with crayons was great fun and lots of the children wanted pictures of capobera, not so easy to draw!
In the afternoon we played ball games, hula hoop, skipping and swinging the kids around - was
awesome- the kids really appreciated having big people around to climb
on and be swung about.

LOKI CUSCO HAS GROWN
THURSDAY, 17, JUNE, 2010
Loki Cusco has Grown!
Last weekend we opened the first wing of our new extension, allowing room for 44 extra Loki guests every night. We now have 6 new small dorms, 2 new large dorms, and a 3rd sun filled courtyard.
We celebrated the grand opening with a huge party on Friday night with a full house. This was a great kickoff to the start of the World Cup, which has got us all glued to the TV every day, sporting our favourite team t shirts all the way.
Loki is proud to sport our new wing and invites you all to enjoy our brand new beds and facilities. The second phase of the extension will be rolled out in an estimated 2 months.
Check out the photos of the big weekend.

LOKI LOVES HOT SHOWERS UPDATE
MONDAY, 31, MAY, 2010
THE NEW "SUPER BOILER" has been installed and as of this morning is pumping out lovely steaming hot water for you guys!
Loki Loves Hot Water.
Loki La Paz has been suffering from pretty severe hot waterproblems of late. We have 5 X 100 litre boilers that have been in place prettymuch since we opened. These have beenproviding scalding hot water to us and our guests.
For reasons unknown this is no longer the case. We have beendoing some work lately to enable our boilers to be connected to street gas. Thework to implement this has triggered the gremlins in our system.
We have changed the configuration for “in series” to “inparallel” and every combination in between. We have had the originaltechnicians in from the company that installed it. We have had new techniciansin to look at it. We even had or very own “Jim’ll fix it” Dror come from Limaand have a look at it. All to no avail.
So we have decided to buy a behemoth of a new water tank of 300 litres which we will fit today ortomorrow ( depending on where we decide to try and squeeze it in ). We lookforward to our guests having roasting hot showers again soon!
We will update this blog tomorrow, hopefully with the good news!
