Drinking Coca Tea in Quito [01:19]
While in Quito Ecuador we took the rare opportunity to try a tea with a bit of a taboo about it. Coca tea. Now while coca is the same plant that is processed into cocain the leaf itself is harmless and widely used in South American countries as a way to combat the effects of hunger and altitude. As a way of treating altitude sickness we found it very effective. What does coca tea taste like? Just like green tea, only more forbidden.
Garage sale, kids and beer! [07:06]
Patience is something you need to have when working with the slow internet connection in Ecuador and it took me three days to get my new video uploaded! But finally here is the next edition! It has been another two weeks in Baños and as said in my last video I'm not ready to leave! There's so many reasons for that and maybe you get an idea of that when watching the video! Even being at one place, every day brings new adventures and I'm learning stuff I didn't think of when coming here. And funny is that I had to come Ecuador to get into something which is so typical in my hometown Munich. And again some information to the video. The earnings of the garage sale are used for renovating the school and for buying books for the kids. So it's all spend in favor of the kids, that was worth being the niñero for four hours. And niñero is means nanny to get that clarified as well. I don't know if there's another word for male nannies as well! So now enjoy watching the video and I try to be a bit faster with the next edition. Yours, Carsten
