Back in Ecuador

I just got back to Ecuador last night, after my uneventful flights. I think this is the first time I've had 5 flights in a row leave on time, so maybe I'm no longer the Jonah of every airplane I fly on. I'm in Quito right now doing my midterm medical check up, ugh! Then tommorrow I should be back in my site. The weather in Quito stinks but at least it's warmer than Chicago. I met some displaced Bolivian volunteers at the hostel who are now finishing their service in Ecuador. When all that stuff was happening with the American ambassadors being kicked out of Venezuala and Bolivia, the peace corps people also had to leave. So some of them opted to finish their service here in Ecuador. I'm looking forward to getting back to my site and baking some real chocolate chip cookies, as I brought like a 5 lbs bag of choco chips back with me. No more mashing up the unsweetened chocolate for cookies!

If it isn't real milk chocolate chips, it just isn't real chocolate chip cookies! :) I think it's wonderful you can share some American treats with the people you're serving.

Hello there. I'll be heading to Ecuador to begin my volunteer service in about 6 weeks. If you have any packing or other variety of suggestions as I prepare to leave TX I'd be so grateful! Thanks!
