Finally getting to work on some sketches for friends abound. It feels good to get things done. Hopefully this productive attitude gets me to the top of my own mountain of work..

Somehow I’ve gone from being the gringo summer student to being tonight’s head engineer at my processing plant-

Yes, you read that right. Pulling the graveyard shift being in charge of the entire operation WITHOUT SUPERVISION.

I’ll let you know if the plant is still standing tomorrow morning. Not gonna lie I’m 100% terrified. Plus the fact that I’m working 7AM-6PM today means that I will be a zombie when I’m trying to run things around here all night. Thats a 20 hour shift. Please send coffee? :)

Ecuador Week 7/8!!!

I very vividly remember messaging one of my closest guy friends when I was in my first week here, I was so discouraged. I was joking with him saying “it’s okay, I only have 57 more days in this fucking place!” Now I have FIVE. FIVE MORE DAYS OF WORK AND I’M A FREE WOMAN. Now that I look at it, I have no idea how time’s been passing so quickly. I want to know when I blinked and suddenly my time working here started coming to a close. I don’t have much of an update because I’ve been sharing so much about my sciency life this week! 

BUT I STILL HAVE STUFF TO SHARE!

Last night I went to this huge street festival in Zaruma and it was a great experience. They shut down all the main streets and had this giant street party. At said street party, I danced the whole night to some AWESOME live Latin music, almost got pulled on stage, drank far too much beer, ate some awesome Ecuadorean street food, got proposed to by a 70 year old man and probably caused permanent damage to my hearing. I don’t remember the last time I laughed that much. I don’t even care that I’m white, Canadian, and therefore lacking all dance skills. I still had a blast! It was the perfect way to spend my last weekend in this province!

Today I booked my BEACHSIDE HOSTEL in Montanita for this weekend and my tourist life in South America officially begins in 5 days. Here’s what I’ll be up to before I return to my home in the Great White North:

  • 4 days in the hippie beach town of Montanita spent enjoying the sun and sand. I’m learning how to surf, drinking lots of beer and dancing my nights away. Prepared to spend 4 days wearing nothing but my bikini.
  • 3 days in Banos where I’ll be hiking, bungee jumping, swimming in hidden lagoons, biking and possibly repelling down waterfalls.
  • 4 days in the Galapagos at the worlds most expensive peep show. Gonna see ALL THE BOOBIES. (I feel the need to apologize for that pun)

I also just booked myself a 6 day mountain biking trip once I get back in Canada. I need some alone time with my significant other AKA my all-mountain. ;) Then I’m headed back to Vancouver to get settled in my new apartment, catch up with friends and enjoy the Canadian beaches before I get pounded by school again in September.

I don’t want to brag but I HAVE A LOT OF ADVENTURES COMING UP. HOW COOL IS MY LIFE?! 

Next time I provide one of these updates I’ll be ALL DONE WORKING!!

Ciao bellos!

Let’s play a game. It’s called “spot the Canadian.” She’s probably the one in daisy dukes and flannel. 🍁 Had an unreal time dancing the night away at Fiestas del Zaruma. ¡Ole!💃💃#flannelorbust #zaruma #ecuador #fiestas (at Zaruma, El Oro, Ecuador)
