Levittown students cross globe for service learning

While many people in Levittown, and across the United States observed Easter and celebrated spring break from school and work, 13 MacArthur High School seniors, including teacher chaperones Dana Fritch, Lynn Spinnato, and Chris Brown, embarked on a service learning/tourism opportunity in Peru. The group, known as the “Peru Crew” landed in Peru’s capital and largest city, Lima, on April 5, spending the day before taking a smaller flight east to Cusco, a popular tourist attraction, home of many of the Incan ruins.

The students agreed, some of the things that caught their attention immediately, aside from exiting a plane directly on the runway, and the change in altitude, were the rickshaws, bicycles, vehicle-right-of-ways, and free-roaming animals. Also a consensus, the view, landing in Lima and Cusco, surrounded by mountains and the landscape in general was awe-inspiring.
