After being kicked out of one house in Quito (well, not exactly, the landlady was going on holiday, and she decided to close the house… anyway), we found ourselves welcomed into a great place. GA.ME, the school where Jon had been studying Spanish, had a house for students and volunteers and they offered us accomodation there. Katy (pronounced cat-ee), the owner, is one of the friendliest people we have met on our travels, and made us feel very welcome. The house is great, it has several dormitories as well as single rooms, a 6 ringed cooker, washing machine, TV room, free internet room and a courtyard to relax when the weather is nice in Quito. In one word, luxury!!! We can´t recommend it enough, so if you find yourself volunteering, or just visiting Quito come to this friendly place in the historic center!  (No, they are not paying us to say this). If you want to learn some Spanish as well, Pablo, one of the teachers at GA.ME is probably the best Spanish teacher Jon has ever had. He makes the lessons fun, interesting, and relaxed, no matter how bad your Spanish is! Katy has a great team, Pato and Marco, who are always keen to greet and talk to you, and she even invites you to her birthday parties! Fantastic times!!!

Despues de que nos echaran de nuestra casa de Quito (bueno, no exactamente, la señora se iba de vacaciones, decidio cerrar la casa… en fin, a lo que iba), encontramos alojamiento en una casa fantastica. GA.ME, la escuela donde Jon estaba estudiando español, tiene una casa para alumnos y voluntarios y nos ofrecieron alojamiento alli. Katy es la dueña y es una de las personas mas amables y simpaticas que hemos conocido en nuestro viaje. Nos hizo sentir realmente bienvenidos. La casa esta muy bien, tiene dormitorios para varias personas y habitaciones individuales, una cocina enorme, lavadora, TV, Internet gratis y un jardin para relajarse! O sea, todo lo que necesitas cuando estas viajando y mas! Ya sabeis, si necesitais alojamiento en Quito, recomendamos esta casa en el centro historico.  (Y no, no nos pagan por decirlo).  Katy tiene muy buenos ayudantes, Pato y Marco, siempre dispuestos a ayudarte o simplemente a pararse a hablar contigo, y el mejor profesor de epañol que ha tenido Jon, Pablo, o Pablito como le llama Katy. Si te alojas alli, seguramente acabaran invitandote a sus fiestas de cumpleaños (como a nosotros)! Que recuerdos!
