NCC Study Abroad Coordinator Katie Hoffer, faculty and staff chaperones including NCC President Dr. Bill Carver and 12 students from Nash Community College departed May 15 for a study abroad trip to Peru.

The trip gave students an opportunity to experience Peru’s beautiful diversity from ancient Inca cities, Lima’s sprawling landscape, lush Amazonian jungles, and the snow-capped Andes.

Among the group’s stops was the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which included a walking tour of Cuzco and the Cuzco Cathedral. Students also toured the home and studio of ceramicist, Pablo Seminario, and watched a live pottery demonstration. While visiting the Lake Titicaca community, the students worked with a local nonprofit group on an eco-focused and community development project. Other stops during the trip included Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo and Puno.
