When I studied abroad in Ecuador, I spent a month doing an internship in Yunguilla. Yunguilla is a small community of 300 people northwest of Quito in the cloud forest. Since we were back in Ecuador, I returned to Yunguilla to see all the people I worked with before.

We volunteered with the community projects, and it was fun to do something different. We helped clear the trails in the cloud forest used for their eco-tourism project. We also helped make cheese and jam and attempted to milk cows. Check out the photos.

Making cheese and it was delicious

We stayed with a family while we were in Yunguilla. We happened to be staying with a couple that I had worked with while building a chicken house when I was in Yunguilla before. They had a cute 4 year old daughter, Miranda, that we played with while we were staying in Yunguilla.
