The students are on the move again, this time landing in a city surrounded by some of Ecuador's tallest Andes mountains –


Ambato has been given many inspired nicknames, including "City of Flowers and Fruit," "Garden of Ecuador," and "City of it's-Hard-to-Breathe-in-This-Altitude"

One guess which name Sophie choose for the city?

In this episode, our students quite literally danced their way around the Ambato, only stopping for sugar-induced energy along the way.

Hello Episode 7!


If you're looking for majestic views, this episode is for you.

From sights up-top a volcano to vibrantly dressed indigenous women, Ambato has that small-town local feel with a heavy dose of beauty.

Ice cream makes yet another appearance – "tres leches" (three milk) flavor – only this time we found an extra surprise inside. What could it be?

Following sugary bliss was lots of dancing!

Even the goat wanted to join in.

Apparently spontaneous dance parties on the street are widely encouraged on all El Nomad programs. See more proof below.

This is what an active volcano looks like (says Sophie)! No need to wonder why we were so far away (you're welcome, moms and dads).

We broke up the antics with a visit to Parque de la Familia. As so much more than just a park, the space is fit-out with a learning center,  agroecological farm, beautiful views, places to camp, and year-round educational seminars. 

We received a private tour around the park, and had the opportunity to get a better sense of Ecuador's native flora and fauna. It's a great place to learn about the cultivation process of local medicinal plants, or how to prepare organic fertilizers.

Take one guess how this episode ends.

You're right - with an EPIC GROUP DANCE SESSION

Who has the best moves? You tell us.
