capes and daggers
Alright, alright. Dear Cape Town, these past three weeks have been pure bliss. seriously. i have already slightly convinced myself that i am never going back to the states. last week, i went shark cage diving. that was incredible. we got on the boat, suited up in wetsuits, diving boots, etc., and went down in this skinny cage while the crew dumped fish chum around us and threw fish heads and...

did i mention the cricket?
so not so funny story. while in atacames, two of mis amigas had birthdays. so, what does a good friend do? tells the waiter to bring out a special dessert. i guess this custom isn’t really something they do in ecuador, but the waiters went out and bought a cake (which was only $10) just for us. but anyway, so there’s a big group of us out for dinner because it was our last night and...

^ lyrics to my favorite song in Ecuador, “Verano Azul” by Juan Magan Okay, so I´m clearly not good with keeping up on this whole blog thing. But, I can say that the past two weeks have been nothing short of eventful. I´ll separate this into bold headings for easy reading Classes So the workload is pretty intense. We technically are fitting a whole semester of work into 4 weeks. So,...
the view I wake up to every morning: so, this weekend has definitely been amazing! yesterday we had a city tour and all the sites were so beautiful. i wish i knew more about their history but the whole tour was in spanish, so I picked up bits and pieces, but definitely was difficult not to drown out the guide. i’ll post all the pictures from the tour on facebook because there’s...
So, my first day/post of this study abroad experience. Quito is AMAZING! Mi mama es muy precioso y paciente. My Spanish es no bueno. Everything came together so effortlessly. I hopped off the plane at UIO (ok, no Miley Cyrus), picked up my baggage and walked through these glass doors to find my host mom already there, screaming “Jeremy?” with arms wide open. Seriously, I...
