La Mitad del Mundo- Spanish Immersion in Ecuador

I recently got back from an awesome 2 weeks in Quito, Ecuador. Amazingly, the Foreign Service Institute sponsored my trip and I didn’t have to take leave! Two weeks of individual classes, field trips to cathedrals and museums in the historical center, and living with a host family. 

It was great to get away from the normal routine of studying Spanish at FSI. I already miss the opportunities to use my Spanish 24/7, even when I didn’t always want to. But this immersion just made me much more excited for moving to Mexico in 2 months!

Here are a few of my favorite moments from the trip:

Me in La Ronda, fun street for eating, drinking, and dancing

Ceviche Peruvian style
