After the epic failure of Cotopaxi, the next few days were spent calmly. Namely, DRINK DRINK DRINK! Alcohol is cheap and plentiful, what sucked the most was not being able to speak to anyone in any sort of coherent way. I really do need to learn spanish!
At this point, I think I must of spent about 3-4 days not doing a damn thing. Which kind of drew away from turning the trip from an adventure to just living in Ecuador. At one point I did end up meeting some English speaking foreign exchange students. One was from Germany, one from Norway, and the two others from the U.S. Pennsylvania and Arizona to be exact!
