My alarm came way too early for my liking. My own fault though. At least I had plenty of time. In the morning we toured the school we are doing our practice teaching at.

The most impressive for us was Iglesias de San Francisco which is the oldest church in Quito and the inside is decorated in gold. It's pretty mesmerizing and impressive to walk around inside. There was a service going on while we were there. We walked down to a narrow old street that's called Calle de La Ronda ...
