Location: The Amazon to the Andes

Today was our last day in the Amazon. As we woke up to the rain, everything around us seemed magical. After breakfast we played a very excited game of charades. Then we got to choose between going on a hike to a water tower or to learn how to basket weave. Both activities were very fun. Then we started to canoe our way to Hector’s island. We all had a blast. Then we took a nice boat ride back for lunch. Afterwards we packed up and started our journey to the Andes. On our way we made a quick stop in a market where everyone managed to find something special. Then we made our way to the airport back to Quito. After the plane ride we started our four hour ride to the Andes. We arrived after dark so we weren’t able to see the view yet. I can’t wait to wake up and see the gorgeous scenery.
