There is so much history located in one place.

We were able to visit two of many churches located in that area.

My favorite was a church called Iglesia De La Compania which is a  church made out of gold. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take pictures of  it… but let me tell you! It was so breathtaking to see. I have visited many catholic churches in Europe but it was so interesting to see the characteristic of a South American church.

I am visiting my boyfriend in ECUADOR!!! He is from Quito, Ecuador…. oolala so latin. Over the weekend we were able to go to a tropical rainforest. Which was so exciting for me because I have never been to a tropical rainforest before.

We stayed in this cabin for one night and two days… the cabin did not have electricity which made things much more interesting and adventurous.

Look at the view from the cabin… isn’t  it so beautiful?

On the first day we went on a hike and I got to see many different trees and bugs that I have never seen before. I felt like I was able to see  Bug’s Life in real life!

The water was so cold but I had the courage to swim a little in the water. Which was so much fun and a new experience for me.
