Dear Family and Friends,
On Saturday, February 2, we took Mary to the airport in Cuenca and said goodbye.
We really enjoyed having her visit and look forward to when both Mary and Steve come to Ecuador.
Mary left on Saturday about mid day and bright and early Monday morning, Chuck and I were flying to Guayaquil for our trip to the U.S. Although we were headed to Washington state, Chuck found a great promotional fare on Copa to Chicago. We have been traveling Monday - Wednesday getting ourselves to Richland!
Here it is Thursday morning and we are at our favorite local espresso shop enjoying coffee and the use of free wi-fi. The best part of coming in this morning was having the barrista shout out, "Oh you're back!"
Here is Chuck, hunkered down with his coffee and computer.
Here is sweet Christy. She and Jake run the best coffee shop in Richland, Barracuda's.
My latte tasted just as good as it looks.
We will be in the U.S. for a total of about 2 weeks.
We return to Cuenca with one week to do our laundry, pack, hug our friends and leave for Spain.
More about that later.
