Hey! It’s your Leaders of the Day Breana and Abby.

Breana: Today was a day that we took time to talk to our families and buy amazing gifts for the people that got us here. Walking around Plaza Roja, you really get a sense of what Ecuador looks like. Being in Ecuador so far from our families we have gained independence. We are so grateful to have this experience. Our free time is a great way to learn how to learn new languages and see what the community looks like. I just want to say thank you to my family for always motivating me to step out of my comfort zone. Today’s highlight was walking around getting hand made gifts for my friends and family because they helped me get here. P.S. Mom bad boys for life, I love you so much. We all miss you guys so much. Can’t wait to see you Saturday. We will come back more independent and have a different view of life.

Abby: The juxtaposition of reconnecting with our families and delving into the independence of being able to explore the thriving city of Riobamba allowed us feel the familiar comfort of home, while continuing to embrace this new experience. Today, we were able to utilize this freedom by enjoying all of wonderful tastes, sights, sweaters, and crystals, that Riobamba has to offer. Wandering through the city on this beautiful Monday afternoon allowed us to strengthen our friendships and sharpen our sense of direction. A day of rest and fun after a week full of hard work was exactly what we needed in order to prepare for our exciting Community Action Projects ahead. Today we were able to buy the supplies we need in order to get these projects started. We are sad that Global Glimpse is slowly coming to a close, but look forward to seeing you all again very soon. Love you mom and Dad.

We loved the suggestion of sharing before and after photos of the CAP project. We’ve included some before photos today so you can follow our progress!
