Meilin's Journey to Ecuador

Current Location

La Maná, Ecuador

Join me on my journey to Ecuador! I will be teaching English to university students as part of Fulbright English Teaching Assistant program. I will also be doing reasearch on bilingualism! 


Although nothing has really changed in La Maná, I did spend time in a place called Pangua. It was filled with greenery, dirt, and the most amazing views, including seven beautiful cascades. 


Ecuadorians celebrate the independence days of many of their cities. They have specific traditions that they follow when they have these parties. 

Field Notes

Trash: bottles, food, wrappers, napkins, tissues.  The problem is that when people throw away trash, they toss it onto the streets. Soon, it is going to pile up even more!  


I traveled from La Maná to Latacunga and then to Quito, the capital! I spent Thanksgiving day with the other Fulbrighters and then traveled around the city with my friend. I hope you enjoy the photos!
