“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with their freedom.” -Bob Dylan
Today, we started with a nice, late wake-up, followed by a traditional breakfast of Colado Morado at Roma Santa.
After breakfast, we walked back to Roma Santa to then walk as a group to a place called Plaza Roja, where we helped small businesses by purchasing PONCHO’s! This being our one and only free-day, we decided to spare some time for a much needed laundry break.
Waiting for our clothes, we continued our day back at Roma Santa for lunch. Shortly after finishing eating, we split into groups and ventured off to explore the city. Some of us decided to call our families, ultimately resulting in a wonderful use of time.
The last activity of the day was an Appreciative Seminar for those who have used their time to make this an educational and overall memorable trip for us all. To them, Yupaichani.
To conclude, a nightly meeting full of laughter and stories of the adventure’s we’ve had today. BIG LOVE to our families! <3
Fun free day for you all! But for us: Rats! Missed the call from our one and only Sarah!😭❤️ Miss you love and cannot wait to see you in just a few days; hope the project goes smoothly and that you and all your fellow travelers enjoy the rest of your trip!

Amalia & Ashley – Big love back at you. Sounds like a perfect day to enjoy each other and Riobamba. I had to look up what a Colado Morado was. It takes some time to prepare and has quite the ingredient list. If it is enjoyable it would be quite a project to make. Glad some of you called your appreciative families. Love that others supported the local economy. Truly love that you are in clean clothes. Sounds like you are an amazing group. ¡Pilas!
