Chontal!

This weekend we went to Chontal, Rosa's home town, a nice village which is about three hours away from Quito. It was amazing, our group was quite big (about 12 people) and we had a lot of fun. The first day we went swimming in a river, which was located directly behind our hostal. We all needed a refreshing after the long bus journey so the river was welcomed! In the evening we played a lot of ¨cuarenta¨ the typical card game Ecuador's. I am sure that I already got addicted:D
The next day we hiked to Rosas parents Finca, a really nice place. We learnend a lot about plants and We saw all kinds of interesting plants (bananas, cacao, coffee, watermelon, peanuts and a lot more), just awesome!
We got back to Quitos traffic jungle on Sunday at about 6:30pm, to be fit for lessons on Monday morning.

Thanks to Rosa for this great weekend!!
