Basketball and The Male Reproductive Organ

Here you go! The new installment in the chronicle of my adventure here in Ecuador. 

I forgot to talk about a few things:
1. A little note about how I get to and from school. My bus is a 12 passenger but we end up cramming around 25 kids in there. Then we crank up the reggaton remixes of various songs and make our way around town to drop kids off. It's quite different from the quiet, philosophical, conversations I would share with my man Chris Hager on the way home in Northfield. Just...different. 

2. As you can see, I got a few hairs cut. Someone tell my hairdresser, Karla, I'm sorry. My school made me shave my mustache and goatee so I look like I'm 12 again. I decided to embrace this with a little push from Andrew and Magnus. We were in the barbershop and, on a whim, I decided to get an Ecuadorian cut. sooo...there it is I guess. When in Rome!

Suerte O Muerte

Since the quality of this video is quite poor, you can look at the pictures and listen to my golden "Whitney Houston" voice!

The apartment in Quito where I spent my first two days

Left to right: Abuelo Pato, Abuela (I might have forgot her name...),
Mama Monina, Tio Adreas, Maria Antonia,  Tia (name also forgotten),  Hermano Fransisco 

This is the view of Ambato from on top of my house

This is a volcano about 45 mins from Ambato called Cotopaxi.
Its the second largest volcano in Ecuador and still totes active. 

This is Ambato at night from my bedroom window!

First Day and Other Notes

Here watch this!
This is up a little late due to technical difficulties with the interwebs here. But being a compy genius, I have figured out how to bypass my problems. Pictures will be next!

Here We Go...

So. Here's my new idea. I don't like writing a blog so I'm gonna try to record myself. It's like my own little fireside chats series, but not as novel. I hope you all enjoy this and can entertain yourselves by counting the number of times I say "ummm..." or "ahhhh...." jajaja!
