        We stayed three nights at this hostal. First night it was difficult to sleep because of the bright lights of the hostal street sign and a party going on from 2-4am (maybe a work Christmas party?) but the following nights were better. The shared bath was adequate and the communal kitchen useful but busy. Good place to meet people. Owner Mario was not very friendly but his spouse Brenda was nice. The two dogs were a bit annoying, kept bugging us when we ate outside and nearly bit my husband when he tried to shoo them away. Good location close to Metrobus and grocery store, quiet and safe area.

        A beautiful hostel in the safe area of la forestier in Quito. Great shower, pretty garden and reliable wifi. Couldn't recommend highly enough

        Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

        This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...

We headed back, all the while trying to understand all the funny things little Pedro was trying to say to us and met Andres at the house. We all got into the car and Andres took us to sample some of Ecuador's more ...

        Solo Practice Teaching

        My first solo practice teaching went... Well, it went. Wasn't quite what I expected, but I'm not entirely sure I knew what I was expecting to begin with. I spent the previous night writing and editing my lesson plan so I would cover all the main points and have plenty to do if the lesson ran fast.

        I had the opposite issue. My student's listening comprehension was a bit lower than I anticipated. They understood me more or less if I wrote most ...

        ... as of yet, but we keep on going and quite quickly arrive at the grounds of the huge place of worship. As with most churches we have visited, this one is grandiose, with Angels flying out of the spires, iguanas, tortoises, and cats adorning the structure, and of course the ever present stain glass, quite beautiful. We enter the church, and as usual, we are not disappointed. No matter how many different churches we visit, or what religion ...

I can tell she wants to have us off her back so I ask if she´s sure they´re gonna accept it. She claims they will. I go to the reports department and Asia stays with the lady doctor, just to make sure she doesn´t escape. Of course the reports department won´t hear of it. "You can´t duplicate reports".
