Wait, I Can Be on the Radio?

Apparently the answer to the question in this blog post’s title is yes. One of my friends on my program has an internship in a building that also houses an Ecuadorian radio show called Radio Turismo Ecuador. The goal of the show is to give potential tourists information about Ecuador and let them know what it’s like to visit and live in the country. The show has programs in many languages, including English, which is where my friend comes in. The head of the program asked her if she wanted to have a show to inform English speaking tourists about what it’s like to visit and live in Ecuador. And I and some of the other girls on the program have been fortunate enough to be able to be guests!

So last Friday, I was a guest on the show, and spoke with my friend about my experiences in Ecuador thus far, and about our recent trip to the city of Cuenca. Having never been on a radio show before, it was somewhat of a strange experience, but it was really cool, and I’m glad I was given the opportunity! And I can certainly say that before coming to Quito, I did not expect to have an opportunity to be on the radio. Just goes to show that there’s only so much you can anticipate about your study abroad experience:)
