    Zach's Bio:
    I am a Senior Global, Cultural and Language Studies major, with a Spanish minor. I am also taking the prerequisites for PA school, which I plan to attend after undergrad. Due to my diverse area of study I usually have to spend quite a bit of time studying, but after hitting the books I can always find something to do here at CSS. You can usually find me hanging out at the rock wall in the BWC but as soon as the snow hits I take every chance I can to get out to Spirit Mountain. I’m enjoying life now and I’m excited to see what CSS has for me in the future!

Public transportation is by far the most popular way to get around Quito. The buses here rule the streets and I frequent them every day to get to my internship, classes or wherever else I want to go. There some days where I rather enjoy the commute via the bus and there are others where I would rather walk 20 miles than ride a bus. These feelings generally revolve around the time of day – the mornings and mid afternoons aren’t bad due to the lack of people, but around 6 is absolutely terrible. 6 o’clock is when everyone is off work or class and all think its a great idea to see how full a bus can really get. Most times the hydrolic doors need to be pushed shut by those who couldn’t make it in while those who did have there bags, hands, shirts and whatever else hanging out of the door cracks. The buses can also be rather entertaining and I have never seen so many interesting money making plots in my life from thievery, clown skits, poems, guitar playing, ice cream vending, DVD selling and my personal favorite, which I saw today – man selling light up pens. He even waited to do his promotions until we reached a long dark tunnel where he could show everyone the different colored lights..
