We´re back!

Excuse us for not actualizing our blog lately, we have been busy improving the website during the last couple of weeks. We hope to launch the new version of it soon!

As the new student coordinator and thus administrator of this blog, I´ll first introduce myself shortly. I´m Rick, a 23-year old Dutch guy who just finished his studies about Business Communication and the Spanish language. About 2 years ago I mostly learned Spanish by living half a year in Santiago de Chile, which I liked so much that I decided to go back to South America whenever possible.
That moment came directly after finishing my final tesis, which I wrote about the image of Ecuador as a holiday destination. So even though I hadn´t been in Ecuador before, I was already interested in this diverse country. And now that I´m living here temporarily, I can approve that it´s a beautiful place to visit!

Hopefully you´ll enjoy reading my reports on the excursions we´ve made with the students. If you have any comments, suggestions or questions, don´t hesitate to contact me via ¡Muchas gracias!
