First few days
After just a few days here in Quito, I can say one thing: wow, just wow. This place is so vibrant and the views take your breath away.
I arrived in Quito on Sunday afternoon and took a 45min cab ride to my destination. The rest of the day I rested and drank water, letting my body settle into the altitude. Only two days after getting here, all the chaperones know my name and have called on me several times to help translate/talk to people.
Yesterday I took a walking tour of two absolutely gorgeous churches. Gosh, I may not be religious but churches can be such stunning works of art and architectural accomplishment.
Here almost all buildings are made out of concrete and there is no need for AC or heat as the temp stays about the same year round (low 40s-low 70s) here in Quito.
Okay, I need to go back inside and help begin prep for dinner. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Wow is right. You are going to get a workout by climbing stairs everywhere you go! I'm sure you love those kids.
