Study Abroad in Ecuador with Wayne State College (June 2018)

The group will first fly into Quito and spend a few days in this metropolitan city that dates back to around 980 AD. Here they will be introduced to the rich history of the city and begin their cultural immersion. Students will then spend several days in the northern village of San Clemente with the Andean people. The students will serve at the school and meet with the leaders and families in the area leaning about their rich history as Pre-Inca people and their close relationships with the regional volcanic geography.  They will then drive south and, after a brief stop at the equator, will take a small plane into the rain forest and spend time at Sharamentsa with the Achuar tribe. Sharamentsa has created a community organization that receives small groups of visitors like ours so that we can learn their way of life.  After flying out of the rain forest students will have time for some recreational activites in Banos before they fly back from Quito to Omaha.
