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!

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

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.
