Tejido Project

That´s my lovely tejido project that I just finished for class.  It´s a little bigger than a placemat.  I just started my next one which is gonna be pretty big – like the size of a refridgerator door minus the freezer part.  haha.  i went to this store in old town yesterday with some friends to buy yarn for my new one, and i picked up a color scheme that is pretty ridiculous.  I call it:

¨Baby´s First Spring…at Dusk¨

I just laughed out loud typing that.  I´m sorry that i am such a goofball.  Maybe you had to be there…

Anyways, my dad is coming in two weeks!  I´m pumped. 

And…I´m also excited because today Kara and I are going to visit ¨Sus Niños¨, an orphanage close to our school that we are going to volunteer at weekly.  I am really really looking forward to it.  Ecuadorian kids are so much more lovable than American kids… don´t ask me why.  They just are.

I knew today was gonna be a good day because I could see the volcano.  Let me explain.  Our bus ride to school is pretty long, like about an hour commute.  2 buses.  The commute during the second bus takes us along a road that is probably full of the most beautiful views you´ve ever seen.  Along the road there are certain spots where you can catch a glimpse of Cotopaxi, one of Ecuador´s amazing volcanoes.  But most days, it´s not visible because of the clouds or what not.  On the clear days when you can see it´s snow-capped peak, I look out the bus window and I don´t feel quite so annoyed to be on that bus with that maniac driver that hits the gas going DOWNhill with the smell of fumes gagging me.  It´s all worth it. 

Till next time!
