i dont know what made me remember this day in school here, but:

i remember the unit in sociology where we were learning about the different indigenous tribes in ecuador. my classmates were supposed to get first hand information. learn about the odd customs and how silly it is that these people STILL carry on this way (ha ha ha, dont they know there are washers and dryers now) the teacher said, "i want you to get real. learn something. talk to these people." but my classmates were confused. locked within their electric fence mansions- they had no idea where to go. the teacher said, "i want you to go talk to your employees. talk to the your maids and your drivers. talk to the cook, the pool boy, and the night guard. i bet you've never asked."

i dont really have much else to say. i have 3 months left here and im exited and not excited all at once. i have been singing and playing "my love" by justin timberlake on my ukulele so much lately. also, i want to eat as many mangos and dragonfruits as possible between now and the time i come home. also humitas, bolones, empanadas, tangos, and ciduelas. oh and coco helado, platacones, and chifles. the end.

a lil survey. bored girl.Collapse )

hello, im back in the world again. the mad twisted world of machala, my lovely little pueblo filled with bullshit and parties. i was living right on the ocean with some friends and cousins. life was good. went to movies literally 5 or 6 times paying $1.50 for tickets. i am now tanner than i have ever been in my life and i never got sunburned. i pierced my nose at this hippie market for $2. went to montañita, god´s gift to earth where hippies from alll over the world roam around selling jewlery, clothes, marijuana, and ice cream. two colombian hippies gave me a dreadlock aka rasta and officially proclaimed me a "ñaña" aka "sister". life was good man. i still cant use my laptop so itll be a lil bit for the few pictures i did take, but i will just post 3 real quick for references and stuff.

pictures.Collapse )

here i am again. back in machalita. this trip to the amazon was AMAZING. literally the best experience of my life thus far, aside from the grand canyon and some things out west USA. my eyes were opened so wide. we stayed at this lodge that was in the middle of NOWHERE and did so many amazing things. right on the Napo river which is a large branch of the Amazon. we helped WORK with shovels and dig out a new pool to raise fish. we made bracelets with real indigenous workers. hiked for HOURS through pure rainforest, in the pouring rain. talked with the children who live in the middle of this jungle... 2.5 hours in canoe to the next big city. we swam miles down the river in just life jackets braving currents and piranhas! i ate piranha (eep) and HUGE GRUB WORMS! (tasted like bacon!!!!) this was just the best trip ever ever ever. i am seriously thinking about coming back to a place like that someday to volunteer and learn and live. what a better use of my time than anything else.

here is the link to the place we stayed:

just everyone go there please, please.

i decided i will do the pictures split up in entries... here are the first ones.

WE"RE GOING TO THE AMAZON!Collapse )

ive been feeling so much better mentally since this move. i was really down about it before but now i am feeling very positive. i hope this feeling will stay.
i talked with my new mami and told her a little bit about home and who i am. ive been eating pure fruit, veggies, and good things. this aunts house that i stay in is like machala rehab. its pure vintage and so calming to me. tomorrow or maybe today i will take some pictures around here.
yesterday i got thinking about who i am, and where i am. how yet again i am in another house drinking out of someone elses teacups and laying on their bed. these people that i have no blood connection with, no history, nothing- here i am and they are taking care of me. why is it so hard for me to let them?

dont read this really. [31 Jan 2010|09:24am]
note to myself:
do not abuse your body. it is a gift. it is yours. it is only yours.

after last night i will never take my body for granted again, seriously. (lie, but i want to be so much better) i just felt like the most disgusting person. i am 100% empty of everything inside of me and my stomach is so sore and tired. i just never want to go through that again. i dont know what happened or what i did, but im so scared to take those pills now. i wont. that is not good either because it just made me further believe my cuckoo theories. i hadnt been to a doctor for a "sickness" since.. i dont know when? pneumonia in 2nd grade? i never take medicines or antibiotics and that just freaked me out. medicated society. i am a hypocrite but we all are.
i dont feel perfect now but i hope its just tiredness. im drinking my "salt, sugar, lemon, water" mixture that my brother made me.. he is a doctor so hopefully this nasty stuff will help me! oh man.
