¡Hola de Ecuador!

I have now been in Ecuador for two weeks. In this time, I have already experienced so many wonderful things, including meeting local friends, and admiring the art, culture, and landscape of Ecuador. Between our courses, excursions, and budding relationships with locals, we are constantly on-the-go. You soon realize how fleeting the days are here and want to make the most of every single one, which, when you think about it, is a good way to live life.
