Quito, Ecuador (Cont’d)-Part 9-lunch at the Hotel Calima and a visit to Museo del Banco Central
On the second day of Spanish School at the Academia de Espanol in Quito, Ecuador, all of the students had to help prepare a fruit salad which was intertwined with a vocabulary lesson. It is interesting the way the school brings in different events to help in the learning process. I really like this method.
After our morning classes, Jim and I headed to the Hotel Calima for lunch. It was a place he had already discovered before I arrived in Quito. He was returning home to OKC in the a.m. to his wife and family while I would remain the rest of the week. I noticed that his Spanish had really improved in the short time that he had been there.
Our lunch at the Hotel Calima consisted of soup, lemonade, a banana, a fruit dish, rice, chicken, and a mashed up vegetable. Total cost was $2.25. A great value! Everyone in the restaurant appeared to be a local. The manager wanted to know how we liked the food then wanted to show us around the hotel lobby in case either of us ever needed a place to stay in Quito. I highly recommend this restaurant in the hotel for a good quality, but yet inexpensive meal.
