Ecuador Updates

Tim and I will be living and working in Quito, Ecuador. I’ll be working at a larger school which specializes in English instruction. For those of you with some Spanish language the school homepage is Centro de Estudios para la Comunidad. Tim is working at more of a community center/MATC type school. His school is more affordable than mine, so no fancy webpage for them. We will both be working with a mix of ages from teenagers to professionals. Our living arrangements are with a host family in Quito. Our hosts are Victor and Mercedes, a retired couple in their mid-seventies. We’re told that Mercedes is a former soap opera star who cooks wonderful meals. At the very least, it doesn’t sound boring!

We’re starting to take care of all the last-minute preparations, it hasn’t really sunk in for me that we’re leaving in a week…
