Merry Christmas/Felíz Navidad

Filed under: Ecuador — lstollin @ 2:31 pm

Joy and I just wanted to take a second and wish you a Merry Christmas!  We are currently vacationing in Panama; we just got back yesterday from the amazing San Blas Islands on the Caribbean coast.  Pictures will be coming soon, once we get back to Quito.

Joy and I both just finished reading Three Cups of Tea, the incredible story of Greg Mortenson and the amazing work he is doing in Pakistan and Afghanistan, building schools for girls in remote mountain valleys.  If you haven´t read this astounding, inspirational story, please consider doing so soon!  Thanks to mother-in-law Ellen Russell for giving it to us as a gift!  Here´s the website: three cups of tea

  2. Nice hearing from you! I read Three Cups of Tea too! Loved it and have also recommended it to many people. Another great book is “People of the Book” a novel about a very old Haggadah that was rescued by a Muslim from a museum in Sarajevo when bombing started in the 1990’s. It’s a fictional story based on a real event. Love, Jen
