Is this real life?

As we walked along the long and winding mountain road connecting the city of Tambo to the ruins of Ingapirca, I could hardly believe that these breathtaking views were part of a a truly existing place. I am happy to say that not only does Ecuador really exist, but I, along with ten other students, can now call her a friend. We have had the privilege of meeting Ecuadorians from many walks of life, and through these relationships our eyes have been opened to new ways of living. This is why we travel, and this is why we will forever carry a piece of Ecuador with us.
