IES, a non-profit Institute for International Education of Students, partnered with UCSD to provide classrooms, educational and travel resources, tour guides, and travel plans for our trip. This organization has over 30 locations worldwide to provide similar programs for other students in the United States. We are grateful for the support and enrichment that the organization’s leaders have given to us. To find out more about IES Abroad and their partner programs, you can check out iesabroad.org!

The day ended with purchasing Ecuadorian cell phones and kind welcomes home from our host families. These families were selectively chosen by IES to give a more thorough experience of everyday life in Quito - from family meals to take the taxi to school. With the support of our host families, each day Quito feels more like home.
