Here are our thoughts on Manna, what we are going to miss in Ecuador, and future plans ... most of which include more adventures and traveling!
Learned from manna: The greatest thing I leaned from manna is the importance of community. In the US, Especially in the cities, we often take our neighbors for granted. In Ecuador, the sense of community is so incredible, that you always know you have someone to call for help, even after living here for only 13 months. People started taking care of us the second we arrived and never stopped.
Future plans: be a vagabond in Ecuador for who knows how long? Eventually, go to grad school and work in the international relations sector
