Finally getting some photos up from our travel and settling in to Cuenca yesterday! It was almost a four hour bus ride from Guayaquil to Cuenca, with more than half of it through the mountains.
We got to Cuenca around 4pm and went to the Amauta Spanish School, where they had PIZZA waiting for us. After pizza and a couple of hours meeting each other and discussing expectations and advice for the program, we split off to meet our host families and settle in at our home away from home (and that's a whole separate post for later).
And then, as if free pizza and a beautiful three-story school building (which you will see in more depth later) weren't enough, we can walk out onto the balcony and see...
This ain't so bad.
