Firstly, my friends from Español Intensivo. Over the weeks, I got to know three girls at the school where I'm studying Spanish. They are engineers, from other countries (foreigners as well!). Scarlett is from China, Chika from Nigeria, and Prossie from Uganda. It's been a joy getting to know them. A week ago we went to Baños together for a weekend get-away (during a holiday, of course).

Secondly, my friend Oscar, who I met at dinner at a mutual friend's house. He is Columbian, but has lived here for years, thus he's been a great help in showing me around the city!

Finally, I have had the chance to get to know some of the other young adults at the Methodist Church here in Quito. One afternoon we walked around the city together. One of the girls is also named Rebecca, thus I was the "Rebecca" pronounced in English and she was the "Rebecca" pronounced in Spanish. Although I kept reminding them to call me Becky. :)
