Follow my journey, volunteering in Ecuador for a year.

I realised that I have written a lot about what I have been thinking and learning but nothing really of what I am doing here, so sorry!
My time for the next month or so is to do intensive language study. I am living about 40minutes from Quito, so it is less busy here than the Captial City. I get up around 8 ish, to guaranteed sun (lovely!) and have breakfast with Elvira. I then walk up the road to a near by Theological College where I can sit and do some Spanish homework and chat with the students (well, I do more listening and smiling but it is good to practise my Spanish!) I talk to some of the children too, who help me with my homework!
I walk back to the house for lunch (lots of rice!) and then go to my Spanish lesson all afternoon.
In the evening I spend time with the family, talking or we may go somewhere. I am reading a Psalm a day, in Spanish, to Elvira, to help my reading!
