Words can't begin to describe what an incredible experience Ecuador was for me. All of my BCA friends, including Daniel and Martha, were like a family to me (and still are).
I will never forget exploring the rain forest at Yachana, watching whales breach off the coast of Puerto Lopez, and meeting so many interesting Ecuadorians who were so very patient with my broken Spanish.
I still keep in touch with my host family and they always ask me when I'm going to come back and visit. Hopefully soon because I really do miss my home away from home!
