The first full day of the trip began with a quick trip to Old Town Quito, the Colonial section of the city, filled with European-inspired architecture, cathedrals, monasteries, convents, and old government buildings.
“But what about all the bugs?!” This was usually the first response I got when I told my friends and family I would be volunteering on the edge of the Amazon Rainforest.
There were many fun experiences throughout the trip. I won’t bore you with the details of the entire trip, but rather fill you with the wonder that made up my most memorable experiences.
