Spanish was good - it's a shame that it's finished...not too sure how much progress I've made though. We arrived at the FBU farm yesterday, and were supposed to start school today but there´s some kind of strrike on - something to do with transport - so none of the kids or teachers were able to get to school. We spend today helping out on the farm - lots of manual labor and weeding round cauliflowers! But tomorrow we're hopefully going to meet our families and start teaching.
Eating is fine - there were about 5 vegetarians in the group in Quito, and stuart has explained to the family I'm staying with. I do miss basic things like Pastitsio and chilli and all the normal, things that we eat at home, especially tea and decent coffee - nescafe is all that's available here and it's disgusting! ast thiursday we all cooked a roast dinner for our family in Quito...but Supermaxi, the ecuador equivalent of Tesco - had no brussells sprouts or parsnips unfortunately. We did have some very good roast potatoes though!
