Perspectives by Josie C


Today while at Rancho Santana, a beach resort on 2700 acres, we heard many new perspectives.  One of the employees told us that some of the benefits of the resort for the local community was that now everyone has a motorcycle and the houses are now made of strong material.  

Adios Ecuador


We started our morning by going to a food market. We got to see new fruits, tons of vegetables, fish and other seafood, all sorts of meat (some of the girls were turned off by what they saw) and tonsof other stuff. We tried sweet plantain chips and spicy ones, we ate things that don´t have translations to English. We ate and then walked back to the school where we ate some of the unknown fruits. Then it was lunchtime and we ate some more (very little actually since we were so full).
