Wow. It’s hard to believe it’s only been a week here in Asanquiri. As we enjoyed our last breakfast with the students, we spent the morning teaching Rolando about the rainwater catchment system, and making a video tour of the center. Luc arrived to pick us up around 11:00. After a lunch with everyone, we said our goodbyes to the students and stopped for one last picture beside the Asanquiri sign.
We then piled into Luc’s truck for the dusty drive back to Cochabamba. The ride was fairly uneventful with no unexpected stops or oil leaks, and we arrived at our hostel after 3 hours on the road. While we greatly enjoyed our stay in Asanquiri for seven days, words can not relate the joy of having toilets that flush and (somewhat) reliably warm showers, albeit electric, once again. Once settled in, we took a short walk around downtown Cochabamba and had dinner at a nearby restaurant. Feeling pretty tired from our past week, we took it easy for the night and squeezed in one more short stroll before going to bed.
