My last weekend
(Sent by Patricia Meza, a student from Quito, Ecuador)
I went to Baños on Saturday 1:00pm with my ex-boyfriend. We had lunch at Latacunga city around 3:00pm, after that we arrived to Baños at 5:45pm, I guess.
Then we looked out for a nice and rustic lodge, after that we went to ride a kind of motorcycle but with 4 tires, we had so much fun with this.
At night we went out for dinner in a Italian restaurant called Buon Giorno and we drank the best wine I had ever drunk. Then we walked for a while around Baños downtown and we also took the funny long car worm. We came back to the lodge to get some rest for the next day.
On sunday we got up at 8:30 am and we took a shower, and went out for breakfast. We decided to ride the motorcycle again but this time for 2 hours, it was so much more fun than the first time, then we took the car and drove to the waterfalls around there. Around 4pm, we were ready to come back to Quito. It was 7:30pm I think, and we stopped at Latacunga to eat something because we were starving. Then we arrived to Quito around 9:00pm. We said goodbye and remembered this trip forever.
TIP: To improve your writing style you can use descriptive verbs. For example, instead of using walk you can write stroll, which means "walk for pleasure". Click here to learn different descriptive verbs.
