      We had so much fun on our first road trip and this next one is sure to be a blast!

      Join idiomART and CCC Spanish for our second road trip, we will be traveling through the picturesque Paute Valley to Sevilla de Oro.  The area has an interesting story.  Many years ago, the Ecuadorian government built a hydroelectric dam and the community was forced to deal with the repercussions.  Rather than just sit around and complain, they got together and decided to live the old adage “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  They started a community tourism project and decided to take advantage of the dam.

      In this trip, we will learn more about this resourceful community.  We will go on a guided boat trip along the 32 km of the dam and learn about the different birds and other flora and fauna as well as take a tour of the dam, which is one of the oldest in Ecuador and provides nearly 60% of the electricity to the entire country!  To top it off, we will eat a traditional meal at a renovated hacienda.

      Sunday, April 3
      9:00 am – late afternoon
      $60/person and includes everything (transportation, guided tour in Spanish, boat trip, meals).

      What a deal!
