Hey family and friends! Leaders of the day, Hilda Fuentes and Sarah Barrios here with your summary of fun day two. We started off the day by waking up at 6:45am to head out and eat breakfast at Café Del Tren. Since today was fun day 2, we went on our field trip to the volcano called Chimborazo. There we had an exotic hike and visited the Bosque de Polylepis.
We all went together to visit the base of Chimborazo, which was 14,000 feet above sea level. At first a lot of people were nervous because the change of altitude which caused shortness of breath, headaches and nausea. But we had two amazing guides, our GG leaders and PCs to help us push through.
After the exhausting hike, we went to go eat lunch at La Tertulia. This wasn`t our usual spot to eat lunch. There we had soup, rice and chicken, and for desert we had watermelon. We got back onto the bus and went back to Tren Dorado. Once we came back, the group had two hours of free time. Some used this time to get coffee, relax and go visit mini markets.
After a long day, our GG leaders and PCs planned a surprised movie night with pizza. The group watched “The Emperors New Groove” and bonded. For the rest of the night we will finish our letters of appreciation for our supporters of Global Glimpse. This has been such a great experience for me and my new friends.
P.S Mom, Dad and Junior I miss you guys very much!
P.P.S Happy Birthday Jose!
