First Day of Class


Thursday was my first day of class in Ecuador! I’m attending University San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) situated at 8000 ft in the Andes. To the south lies snowy Cotopaxil; downslope eastward is the Amazon Rainforest; and a 20-minute bus ride west is Quito. The public buses here come literally every minute, they are cheap ($0.25 round-trip with a student ID), and they are comfortable.

Classes are 80 minutes, entirely in Spanish. Before lunch I have three classes. After an hour for lunch I have one more class and then ride a bus home.
