Goodbye Ecuador...

... and thank you for everything - I had a wonderful time. I cant believe that originally I had such a hard time with deciding to quit my job and doubts from time to time if it was the right decision. But since starting this adventure and working in Casa Hogar de Jesus I am asking myself why it took me so long to make this decision - cause I havent regret the decision any second so far with making experiences like:
- Riding a bike along an ecuadorian highway, taking a break drinking and eating a fresh coco-nut
- Eating types of fruits that I never new existed - btw. Ecuador made Mango (in all sorts of forms) to my new favourite fruit
- Build a roof for a family in need
- Took a spontaneous dip in a river in the middle of a jungle
- Experience a culture full of love for life, music and food - who take things a bit more relaxed than we Germans or anybody in the US or UK
- Experiencing ecuadorian hospitality in full
- Spending time day in day out with kids who enjoy their life even though they had fatal hits of faith which we will never experience
- Learned a new language (ok - I am far from being fluent in spanish - but basic communciation works :-))
- and much much more....
Since yesterday I arrived in Bogota, Colombia and am living in a very chilled Hostel. Bogota is smaller than I though and I guess I am going to move on by Thursday or Friday but it has a beautiful old town and police and military at any corner so that I havent felt safer in any other big city in this world than in Bogota. As I dont have access to my Ecuador pictures at the moment and to give you an impression I am going to attach a few pictures....
