During my time in Ecuador, for the first time ever I . . .
*hung my clothes on a clothesline.
*saw someone reading the Wall Street Journal in Spanish.
*used U.S. Sacagawea dollar coins daily.
*lived at an altitude of 9,350 feet.
*commuted to and from work on a city bus.
*missed my bus stop and had to walk back to where I should have gotten off. Then . . .
*learned how to politely push my way through people on the bus to get off the bus faster at my stop.
*drank hot chocolate with cheese.
*regularly put my cell phone in my bra. (It’s what we’re supposed to do for safety!)
*gave people the “evil eye” to deter them from taking my stuff.
*took Spanish lessons in a group of 6 . . . and loved it!
*drank a sweet milk drink with corn in it . . . it’s delicious.
*saw someone riding a motorcycle and pushing a bike alongside them.
*visited beautiful Calle La Ronda at night.
*ate soup two times a day (lunch and dinner).
*accidentally called The Three Bears the Three Eyes in Spanish. (tres osos vs. tres ojos)
*accidentally said I had an “old” stomach instead of a “full” stomach. (estomago vecio vs. estomago vacio)
*drank tea two times a day (breakfast and dinner) and dipped bread in it.
*rode the trole.
*visited a museum displaying Mayan art.
*visited the market and saw a butcher cut a goat in half and begin pulling out the organs. (Gross!)
*took a salsa dancing lesson (this was mandatory from WorldTeach!).
