Woke up super early and took a bus from Quito to Ibarra where we would be doing our volunteering at Guayabillas animal rescue and rehabilitation centre. We were living with Oscar and Anita, who collaboratively run the centre, and their two children Santiago and Daniellita. As soon as we got off the bus it was straight to work. We met another volunteer who showed us around and then we started cleaning the cages. At first we were a little nervous about getting in the cage with the monkeys but we had to get over that pretty quick.
