Two Weeks in Ecuador Reply

By Allie Clancy – 1851 Contributor

Ecuador has given me so much I can’t even put it into words. I’ve learned what hard work looks like, I’ve experienced a new, vibrant culture, I’ve met the most kind and open people, and learned what life is really about. The past two weeks have changed who I am. I’m forever thankful to everyone on this trip and so happy to have them through this experience, and now in my life.
