Monday, September 15


Yesterday we flew into Quito -- apparently the most difficult airport to land at because of the runways and the altitude.  We're at almost 10,000 feet above sea level, nearly two miles.  

Today we met with our in-country host organization, called Yanapuma.  It's an NGO based in Quito that has been around for about 2 years and does various projects around the country promoting sustainable development and cultural preservation.  Tomorrow we'll be beginning our month-long homestay in a TsaChila village called Bua, about forty minutes outside of a town called Santo Domingo.  We'll be living with families there, building eco toilets at the elementary school.
