Alane is a Peace Corps volunteer stationed in the Andes of Peru, in the town of Marco, at 11,433 feet above sea level. She holds a B.A. in Theatre from Brandeis University and a Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Princeton University. Before joining the Peace Corps, she taught at Fort Lewis College in the tourist town of Durango, Colorado for 22 years. Her areas of research include environmental psychology and the psychology of music. The college gave her a leave for 2 years, and now she’s in the Community-Based Environmental Management program in the Peace Corps. She is combining her love for geocaching (a GPS-based treasure-hunt game) with her fascination for the natural and archeological treasures of her Peruvian community to create a geocache tourism circuit or “GeoTour” that explores the Yanamarca Watershed. This blog will follow her community’s adventures in setting up the first GeoTour in South America.
