During the fall of 2007, I spent 4 months in Ecuador studying tropical ecology and conservation. [More on Ecuador.]
For roughly 6 weeks, I lived in Quito: taking advanced Spanish classes; learning more about Ecuador’s cultural and natural history; exploring Old Town; and salsa dancing, drinking jirafas de pilsener, and eating a lot of plátanos fritos in the Mariscal.
We spent roughly 2 weeks in Ecuador’s bosque nublado, including 3 days with an Andean family.
