Comings and Goings

Filed under: Ecuador — Tags: , , , , — lstollin @ 9:18 pm

So sorry it’s been entire months since I’ve written. It’s been an interesting and busy first part of the year (I can’t say “spring” down here).

Since our big New Year trip, we’ve hosted some travelers, and done some traveling ourselves. Visiting us were: former Austinites Kat & Damon who are in the Peace Corps on the Ecuadorian coast, who thrilled at our fancy house and hot water, and Austinites Bob and Evey who visited during UT’s spring break for a week. As for our journeys, we spent holy week visiting Cartagena and Bogota, Colombia. Tomorrow my brother Bruce and Mom and Dad arrive. Bruce is staying just a week. Mom and Dad are including a Galapagos trip and will be here a total of three weeks. On the 17th and 18th (during my parents’ visit) I’ll be spending two days with the 6th grade on an overnight sojourn to El Refugio, a camp/retreat center about an hour from Quito.

I’ll try to do better about writing. Maybe I’ll be do fewer big multimedia posts – it takes forever to get all those photos chosen, resized, uploaded into flickr.com and moved into slide.com. Still, I want to share pics from beautiful Cartagena, and from the Botero museum in Bogota as well as Suesca, a great climbing area outside Bogota…
