The start of Tuesday July 26th was rather peculiar, I've become accustom to waking up to the sounds of cows and chicks, but today was completely different. Our family began playing "typical" Ecuadorian music at around 4 am, so I just stared at the ceiling while Angel and Cristian slept through the static. The day didn’t start until 7:30am when we all woke up and had family breakfast. We headed to the school around 9am. We are in the food science group (Evely, Ines, Kiki, and I) at school. We talk about nutrition and living healthy lifestyles. I must say we have been crushing our lesson, the kids are enthusiastic, presumably because we give them food. If they are anything like me their stomachs are the key to their hearts… 

Drinkings smoothies, even with spinach!

We had lunch in the park, it was tuna sandwiches, I tried it for the first time and it wasn’t that bad…. Later we made our way to the central market in Otavalo where we bought food for our family. Cristian and Angel did most of the talking, I was just in awe of the scenery because it was my first time exploring Otavalo. I was also carried the money and paid the kind vendors. I felt like Daddy Warbucks. After shopping we proceeded to split into smaller groups and find dinner in Otavalo, somehow 70% of us ended up at the Argentinian Empanada place, they were dope. We even got a few minutes of interneting done at the Hostel.
