I cannot believe that it has already been 2 weeks that we have been here in Ecuador. I thought it felt as though I had been here forever, then someone mentioned to me that today is 2 weeks, and I gasped with shock. Time is flying here and our rigorous schedule always keeps me busy. This past [...]
So sorry for going so long without a post!! I was having some technical difficulties, but everything seems to be back in order now. The following was intended to be posted Thursday, September 3rd.

We arrived to Cuenca last night and today we had our first set of classes. I am sitting at CEDEI (where we have classes) on a lovely patio with beautiful flowers. Two little girls are watching me write this from the window, and every time I look at them they giggle. So far, Ecuador has [...]
