I’m finally here! I am currently sitting in my hotel room after a long day of travel from BWI –> Quito. There have been months worth of anticipation leading up to this trip and I have to pinch myself to realize that I am truly in South America. The trip was painless with on-time flights and very friendly airplane seat neighbors. The program coordinator picked us up right outside of customs, we boarded a bus and an hour later we arrived! Dev, one of the students, and I are sharing a room in a quaint little hotel. Breakfast is at 730 AM tomorrow, followed by a long day of logistical errands. I can’t wait to see the city in daylight!
