feliz cumpleaños helen!

This weekend was so much fun! I'm going to work my way backward, so please just relax, sit back, and enjoy my show :)Last night was my friend, Helen's birthday so we went to a Mexican restaurant. I had one of the best Vegetarian burritos with Red Wine.
The night before we had a cooking class where we learned how to make Locra de Papa. I've had it once before since being here... I liked it but the second time around was so much better! I added avocado and our homemade salsa, it was one of the best dinners I've had so far!

Earlier that day this was lunch- salad, chicken, potatoes, rice. :/
The day before, however, I was happily surprised with an Italian-inspired meal! Scrumptious garlic bread and al dente pasta with Ecuadorian cheese, mushrooms, and meat. Monday's lunch was also very enjoyable... and meat-less! I had a broccoli omelette and mixed bean salad. I was so hungry and ate my plate completely clean! This weekend we went to Ingapirca. It's an Ecuadorian Incan ruins site, I cannot even describe how absolutely incredible!
Out of the entire group I probably got the most excited about our stop before Ingapirca, an indigenous market a.k.a. South American farmer's market a.k.a. Danielle thought she died and went to heaven. Seriously. Isn't that produce absolutely beautiful?!

Friday night was my host-aunt's birthday. As usual dinner was pretty much non-existant and we just went to the grandmother's house for dessert. I didn't eat the cake but it was nice meeting the extended family... they are just as nice as my nuclear family. I'm so happy with everything and every one! Well, that's all for now folks! There'll be a few more lunch pics for the rest of the week and then my documentation of this weekend's camping trip. El Cajas here I come!
