Las morena and I met our freshman year of college, when we were 18. We were both participated in a university sponsored study abroad in Guayaquil, Ecuador with the intention of learning Spanish. While there we became close and have shared adventures and host families in several places in Latin America. When she decided to change careers to teach English in Spain, she knew she could count on me to come visit and to participate in a great adventure.
We wre so happy to see each other and excitedly chatted at a whisper. We didn't want to disturb the other housemates, especially the German kids, Riva and Rosa. We chatted til the sun can up and I think I literally fell asleep mid sentence at about 6am or so!
La morena is one of my favorite travel partners. She's low maintenance, don't require a lot of stuff, and has a great outlook on life and enjoying it to the fullest. Reunited and it feels so good!
