A Whirlwind Few Weeks in Quito

January 31, 2014

It’s been a busy few weeks in Ecuador. Schoolwork is picking up, but we still manage to find time to do some traveling. Our trip to the market in Otavalo was one of my favorite excursions so far. Hiking and SCUBA diving also top the list. We saw manta rays, sea turtles, and eels while underwater! We also went to a professional soccer game in Quito, which was crazy with all the fans chanting in Spanish! I’ve really loved my time here in Quito and my host family, so leaving for the Galápagos this weekend will definitely  be bittersweet.
