We had a day off of classes for "Fiestas de Quito" and I decided to have a day to myself, so I went downtown to all the museums, which were free that day in honor of the holiday. In the first museum I went into, an older man saw that I was looking around, and he took me through the museum explaining what it was like in Ecuador just before they had to convert to U.S. currency. He walked me around the entire museum and talked to me about all the experiences he's had in his life related to the things we were seeing together. After, he said goodbye and wished me well, and I moved on to another museum. I had to wait in line for awhile, and I was behind a small family. Since the museum was so crowded, I was behind them throughout the museum and the kids started talking to me. They told me all about what they were learning in school. When we finished,of course it was pouring outside. The mom saw me standing in the rain across the street and yelled that she lived very close, and I could come and have some juice. The kids ran with me to their door and were so excited; they gave me juice (tang of course) and showed me all of the pictures they made at school and their favorite movie. After a couple minutes, I said thank you and left. It was one of the most rewarding and memorable days that I've had.
