Ecuador! What an incredible place! My time studying entomology in such a wonderful country was truly an experience of a lifetime. Everyday was an adventure. From hikes that made us so sore that we did not want to get out of bed the next morning to snorkeling with sharks, there was never a day that lacked excitement.

Having been back in the United States for roughly two weeks now, I miss Ecuador. I miss all the beautiful creation that we saw. And, I deeply miss the lifelong friends I made. Our group was incredible. We had lots of different personalities that fit together perfectly into a great team. I cannot wait to get back to school to see my new friends. I miss them so much!
