hey you guyss!!!!
right first entry.... ummm well i got here ok as u can prob tell!! had a bit of a run thru madrid airport and they very nearly closed the gate b4 we got there which was a lil bit scarey and we woulda ended up hom long before expected!! well i flew with carla, shona (from glasgow and yes she has the accent!!) and rachel (shes from london :)) lol we met sarah on th plane coz she flew down from germany!! anyways th flight was stupidly long and time dragged...food was pretty damn good tho i was happy!! oh and i wasnt hungover at any point!!
anyways... got to quito and everyon got their stuff bar rachel whos bag hadnt even left heathrow yet!! shes got it now so no worries!! got whisked away by my family and i then realised how little spanish i actually know!! im picking it up slowly but still...bit depressing after 7 years doing it!! they speak so god damn fast!! yea so later that night i ended up at a party with my cousin which was fun but i was jet lagged and hadnt slept 4 48hours and the alcohol killed me so was back in bed by midnight (but bear in mind it was like 5am 2 me so wasnt too bad!!) oh charley....they wear make up out here, lots of it in fact i look odd for not wearing it so dont worry bout me coming back a beast!! olly....the boys aint bad but i wont be gettin with some hairy ecuadorian (not that there that hairy!!) AND my family r trying to set me up with every man going...wish i said i had a bf now :( ah well!!
yday i met all my family (theres 55 of them!!) there all lawyers or doctors or accountants....rich old family!!! one of my uncles is real nice, gave me a mobile 2 use here and bought me pizza today!! im teaching him english and hes helping with my spanish (or lack of)!! went to church last night..that was different i couldnt understand a word but good experience!!
today i met all the volunteers which was good, made me feel less lonely half of em have been here ages tho so know their way around...will come with time tho!!
jamie (one of th boys) reckons quito (where i live) is the size of glasgow...i think its bigger than london, easily. its massive and the closest point to the sun in the world (yes piggy i bet ur jealous!!) but its th worst weather in 10 years, all they talk about is how cold it is!! i think its warmish!!
anyways gotta run speak soon, love and missing you all more than u can imagine!!
