For the past year, I’ve been taking Spanish classes online. The people in your class change from day to day, so typically, the teachers start by having everyone briefly introduce themselves. Where are you from? Where do you live? Why are you learning Spanish? Consequently, one of the first phrases I learned was “Vivo enContinue reading “Anaconda Lodge in the Amazon Rainforest, Napo, Ecuador”

Rafting in Tena, Ecuador, with Raft Amazonia
We’re switching it up, folks! When Sis and Terry were here, we went rafting with Raft Amazonia, a Kichwa-run rafting company in Tena. We had THE BEST TIME!

Our first visitors in Tena, Ecuador!

On the one hand, it feels like we’ve been here for a while. We’ve settled into our apartment and gotten into a daily routine. On the other hand, whereContinue reading “Tena, Ecuador: Six-month Impressions”
Greetings from Tena, Ecuador!
I’ve been slacking on the blog front. We’ve been here for two weeks, and I’m not quite sure how that happened so quickly. It feels like we’ve been going non-stop since we arrived. The trip from Germany was surprisingly uneventful. We left Munich at ~6:30 am, had a short layover in Amsterdam, then it wasContinue reading “Greetings from Tena, Ecuador!”
