I am the director of Conexiones-Ecuador, a summer study abroad program that runs every other year. Students live with host families, study Spanish at the Universidad de Cuenca, and go on weekly excursions around the theme of Food, Sovereignty and Development.  Conexiones is open to all students at the University of New Mexico. Our next trip will be in May 2020. Contact me at marygoldwd@unm.edu if you are interested or would like more information.
