We are now officially on spring break.
I teach at an international school in Quito, Ecuador, and many of my students are from all over the world, but primarily from other Latin American countries. Whenever we have a vacation, many of my students take advantage of all this beautiful country and region have to offer. Here’s where some of them are going during this break – Macchu Picchu, the beach, Dominican Republic, Easter Island, the Galapagos Islands, Mindo (subtropical town in the cloud forest about 2 1/2 hours from Quito), Guayaquil (the major port city in Ecuador), and Baños (quaint town in the mountains that is home to the Tungurahua Volcano that has been actively erupting since 1999). Of course, there is always the trip to Miami.
Just in case you are not familiar with Ecuador, here are some promotional videos from the Ministry of Tourism that will introduce you to this beautiful country. Sit back, relax and enjoy the images of Ecuador in these videos.
My family is staying home to enjoy a much needed week of R and R.
