Ecuador and The Galapagos Study Abroad Before Leaving

Leaving for college was a hard adjustment in my life so you would think leaving for another country would be full of anxiety and fear. However, this is not the case for me. There are only two things that have me concerned, the minimal Spanish I now speak, and the fact that toilet paper has to be thrown in the trash instead of the toilet. There will be no bigger culture shock that putting my refuse covered paper into the trashcan. Aside from that there is nothing too concerning about this trip. It is more a matter of excitement and joy especially since it will be my first time flying and visiting another country. As far as preparing for my anxieties there is not much I can do to prepare for putting my toilet paper in the trash, so its just a matter of trying to get myself into the right mind set I suppose.
