Why I Loved My Experience At the Andes and Amazon Field School

My experience at the Andes and Amazon Field School was incredible! I felt like I was truly challenged by the courses I took during my stay. I actually struggled with the courses, and the language barrier of Spanish and Kichwa (the indigenous language spoken there), however I learned from these struggles and I left Ecuador with a greater sense of confidence in myself. I saw and experiences the Andes and Amazon region of Ecuador which is something I will never forget. The country is absolutely beautiful, the people are friendly, and the food is fantastic! What's to complain about? The only thing that comes to mind is the humidity.
