Hey Will!
I hope this letter finds you well....I've always wanted to say that! Leaving Gauyaquil...it was awesome so far of the three centers I've seen I like CefoCine the best! Wait till you see what these kids made! simply fantastic.... I also got a phenomenal interview with Rafael I want to model my program after his... I have so many things I want to show you guys. each center gave me tons of material. CefoCine has something similar to our job tech program and other programs gaining them recognition al over south America! They have a fantastic place and are opening up a new one. I think we should stay in contact with them as they grow! I rode the bus in guayaquil... what an adventure! there is no rhyme or reason but we managed. No place takes Credit cards.. they are like the black plague.. so I'm having to eat at the hotel which is kind of expensive and annoying... especially when there are so many KFC's around!

Best wishes
