First weekend - survived. No taxicab kidnappings, robberies, muggings, etc. etc. Overall it was pretty chill - Friday night, we hung out at Tom's house for a birthday party for his host sister's boyfriend (did I get that right?), and then went to our favorite British pub for some late-night hilarity. Saturday we spent in Old Town (El Centro), more or less the historic part of Quito, and followed it up with a movie - Agente Sal, con Angelina Jolie. Nothing too crazy, which was fine by me. Plenty of time for salsa dancing in sketchy parts of town and weekend trips to the beach (hint, hint). Instead of a boring play-by-play, how 'bout some pictures:
Game of AWKARD - Amanda and random Ecuadorian
Plaza in Old Town
Me, Amanda, and Madison in Old Town
Catedral de San Francisco
'El plato fuerte' in the restaurant below the Cathedral - kind of amazing.
