I have several photos that I’ve collected over the past months that I would like to share. I hope you enjoy seeing a wide
assortment of photos in this post. As always, thanks for joining me on this journey . . . I appreciate it.
This volcano is a beautiful sight in Riobamba and was amazing to hike too!
I went to a Barcelona (from Guayaquil – not Spain) soccer game and LOVED it. You can see from the picture
how passionate fans are for their team . . . especially the guy who climbed the fence! How fun!
The school where I teach English went Christmas caroling one evening at a park and at a few other areas in town.
This picture was taken right before we left to impress everyone with our beautiful singing voices.
One day, my school served food to homeless individuals in the Riobamba community. In addition,
some of the younger students from the school sang Christmas carols. It was a great day!
I promise this is not supposed to be a “butt-shot” of my students. I simply want you to see how sweet
the Ecuadorian culture is and how oftentimes when girlfriends walk places together – they hold hands. I love it!
It was very hard work grinding the plantains and then making soup. Way to go Maria!
Here is a picture of the classroom at my school. Yes, there is a post in the middle of
the room. But surprisingly, the post isn’t quite as distracting as you might think! 🙂
My school had a Food Fair in which each class researched a country, made food from the country, and presented
it to others at a celebration. My class learned about Sweden and did a fabulous job presenting their research.
at the party (very common in Ecuador) lighting the candles on the cake. Also, I promise the clown on the right
wasn’t as creepy as he looks in the picture . . . the lighting was just at an awkward angle at that moment.
Here is a picture of my Spanish teacher, Cesar, and his family.
Cesar puts up with my struggling Spanish skills for 2 hours each day . . . poor guy!
(2 hours from Riobamba) and went on a tour up a mountain. It was great – despite the constant rain! 🙂
During the trip to Banos, we also saw some amazing plants. Here is one of them! Cool, huh?
Here is a picture of some meat I saw one day when I was walking down the street.
I had to look twice to see if I was really looking at a cut up pig in the back of a truck. Blech.
As families in Ecuador decorate their homes for Christmas, many make a Nativity scene like this.
The scenes are elaborate and they are interesting to look at. This one is at the house of my host family in Quito.
Ecuador is one of the top exporters of flowers in the world. Every time I have an opportunity,
I enjoy walking past florists on one particular street in Riobamba. They are beautiful!
