|Study Abroad Ecuador
||[May. 15th, 2007|10:28 am]
I'm starting to get really nervous/excited, as I always do just before I travel. My study abroad classes start today at the university (I'm studying Spanish language and Latin American history and culture) and we fly out this Saturday. I have a feeling that this trip will be quite a challange, as I'm staying with a family (which I still know nothing about!) in the capital, Quito, and must therefore stretch my limited Spanish skills to the max. Plus, big cities usually disorient me, but I love it. I'm ready to take the plunge into this other world. |
Quito is situated a bit below the Equator, but it stays very cool all year round, because it's elevated so high in the mountains. We will be surrounded by snow-covered mountains and volcanoes. I don't know what more I could want.
