Back in Shell - with everyone

Near the end of our trip, all of the interns from Quito joined those of us in Shell to work together both in the Desarollo Communitario office (Community Development) and in the nearby Hospital Vozandes Del Oriente. It was great to introduce the Quito-ites to the jungle, and watch them squirm a bit when they saw all the bugs.

Below: After enjoying beautiful weather for a whole week- rain for only about three hours a day- we knew our luck was running out. It rained a good 20 hrs straight on this day. (And this is considered the dry season!) Of course as interns, we had the privilege of riding in the bed of the truck on this trip to a jungle community.
