Being "Beautiful, Healthy, and Strong" in Peru
Bold Betties note: Another one of our "Women's History Month" submissions paying homage to women in our lives that change our personal history. The following is from Bold Betty Angela Bakas about her sister Liz. If this makes you feel wanderlusty, make sure you see our note at the end.
It was the summer of 2010. I was only 20 and had just quit my job to thru-hike the Colorado Trail with my brother. My sister had just lost her job as a teacher since she was “too young” and didn’t have tenure. “When you get back, would you want to go with me to Peru?” she asked. We had nothing to lose, so we went.
