... he or the other two fathers were the rest of the time. There are lots of intricacies learning a language so different to English. It would have helped if I'd paid more attention in french lessons as a lot of words are similar, as is the (really annoying) attribution of a male of female identity to all objects. After the two weeks I seem to be able to have basic conversations with people but only where I know the topic. I also often find myself having to ...

Long delay and a long flight

A travel blog entry by benschulz01 on Jun 10, 2014

Storms rolled into Atlanta as I boarded the plane and the flight was delayed about 2 hours. I met a really interesting guy named Bob on the plane. He was an American citizen that lives permanently in Ecuador. He owns a gym I. A town on the Pacific coast. He invited me to stop by and meet him family when I am in the area. My former student, Cindy along with her mom and aunt, graciously picked me up at the airport at 1:30 am. I am staying in an apartment that they ...

The quick walk turned out to be a whole other adventure. There's a huge, imposing, gothic church that can be seen from anywhere in Quito, called the Basėlica del Voto National. All day long it had been peering over us, so we decided to walk up to it and check it out. From the outside it ...

I fell off the writing train..

A travel blog entry by kendahlc on May 13, 2014

The last few days have been pretty busy!! On Friday it was my last volunteer shift, I was a little bit hungover (a lot hungover) but we got to the market so early that we had time before getting the kids to play a game of soccer! It was really fun and made me feel a lot better! I even scored, and I realize this may be surprising. Friday night we went down to la Ronda which is a strip downtown of restaurants and live music. It was a really pretty area, it's kind of ...
