The following post features student writing.
We started off the day by participating in Cotacachi’s 156th birthday parade along with the community of Iltaqui. In the town of Cotacachi, we experienced many different traditional dances and ate delicious Ecuadorian pastries. After the parade, we held English classes for all people of the Iltaqui community. Afterward, we played volleyball: Gringos v. Ecuadorians. Overall, the day was packed full of amazing experiences and full blown cultural immersion.
