The Plan

Since my team meets on Sunday nights, I'm hoping to update the blog after every meeting with the things that came up, including fundraisers, schedules, and other things about Ecuador.

Getting ready to go to Ecuador is kind of overwhelming, especially when we have no idea what we are doing there! As it is a cultural immersions program, the Rostro de Cristo (Face of Christ) organization will be giving us our schedule and we won't know it until we get to Ecuador on the 13th of March. They have worked with hundreds of volunteer groups and know the best way to give us the best experience, which may be way better than us trying to set up things on our own. It leaves us on edge and willing to accept anything on this trip.

I am very excited to find out what is ahead and to use this blog to not only show others our progress, but also use it to grow with myself. Personally, I need to practice more Spanish, really understand the Ecuadorian live style, and the history that blossomed into the culture that Ecuador and Duran currently have!

Stay tuned for another update tonight! Adios

Bienvenidos Amigos!

Welcome to the Ecuadorian Experience blog!

During the next couple of months leading up to my departure date to Ecuador, March 13, 2010, I will be compiling information about Ecuador including food, language, culture, and environment, as both an informative site for others and a reflection for myself.

After my one-week trip, I hope to return sharing insight from my first hand experience, and blog about what I encountered in my travels!

Keep posted for photos, links, videos, and more!!

Feel free to leave comments, support, and other interesting facts about Ecuador!

If you are interested in donating to the cause, also please visit my fundraising site for more information!

Thank you, and ENJOY!
