yesterday´s fiasco brings the wipe-out-in-public tally to 2. Wearing heels has always been something I enjoy…but not in ecuador. the thing is i stay down there on the ground for a few minutes because i´m laughing so hard, making a scene and drawing even more attention to myself besides the unavoidable gringita factor. what an oaf i am.
in other news, today and yesterday we had international student orientation to USFQ. There´s 250 other american students studying here this fall! There are a lot of new faces to meet. Tomorrow I am looking forward to classes starting. I´ll have textiles (weaving) and literature tomorrow and then tuesday thursday i have spanish conversation and modern dance. it´s a pretty easy schedule, thank goodness.
in the words of my friend Arelis…
¨WE´RE IN ECUA!! LIVE IT UP!!!¨
