Hola Global Glimpse family!! We are the RB2 team: Melissa and Ana María! Sending big love from Riobamba, Ecuador!!! We are so looking forward to meeting you and showing you the wonders of the Chimborazo region. The both of us have spent 3 months in Riobamba and we adore it. We have met amazing people, visited unique locations, and put together and awesome fifteen-day agenda for our dear Glimpsers. We are confident this will be an amazing cultural exchange and self-discovery experience for all of us!

There are some curious facts about Riobamba: Due to the bulge in the Earth’s shape, the city is located closer to the Sun than one might think. Also, the morning can be super rainy and then turn into a really sunny afternoon –be prepared for every weather in one day! Don’t forget to bring a warm jacket, windbreaker, and lots of sunscreen.

Finally, let’s remember that, in order to make the best out of this experience, we should not only keep an open mind but an open heart. Nos vemos pronto!

 Melissa & Ana
