City tour and first day of school

0

Today we took a tour of Quito. We saw some really old churches (1500s) and walked around colonial Quito. We saw the presidential palace where they were having a changing of the guard ceremony. After that we went up to a really high hill called El Panecillo where we took in a great view of Quito. 

When our tour of the city was over we went back to the school where we took our oral and written placement exams. The girls will be placed in ability level classes tomorrow. We planned our own adventure for  tomorrow morning since we have an open morning. The girls decided to go to another market to shop a little more. We plan on having our first experience using public transportation tomorrow! I love the adventuruous spirit of this group. We are beginning to get to know our surroundings a little better and are venturing out to do things with our families and group.
