A little This and That

Well, Thanksgiving has past and, thankfully, so has the election season. I won’t say anything more than I’m glad it’s over with and will be glad when the country settles down and gets back to working on those things that are important. Hope that one an all had a wonderful turkey day and were surrounded by the love and laughter of friends and family. We’ve so much to be thankful for and count our blessings every day. What are you thankful for in this great game of life?

We are gearing up for our trip to explore another part of Ecuador and I will try to post about our travels and experiences as they progress. I have a new iPad, so it’s taking some getting use to using its tiny keyboard and learning all its ins and outs. I’m hoping to be able to post some pictures we take as well.

From what we’ve seen following the weather, it’s been in the 70’s during the day and 45 or so at night. The rainy season is due to start in December, so not sure just how much rain they get so will have to remember to pack a small umbrella. Will definitely have to get use to wearing “clothes” again as here in sunny Florida, shorts and tee shirts or sun dresses are the norm. There in Ecuador, with a cooler climate, will have to wear slacks or jeans and shirts/blouses with longer sleeves, not to mention making sure to wear sunscreen if out and about due to increased UV there.

The hardest part about travel is that these days you have to be at the airport 2 hours early, 3 hours if international travel and if you live any length of time away, you have to add that into the mix to figure when you need to arise, do last-minute packing and leave. I figure that I may not even get to go to sleep at the rate flight info changes, and that I say with a weak grin. It will be worth it in the long run.

Wish one and all the very best wishes and may you and yours enjoy all the very best that life has to offer. I leave you with a few more pictures from our July trip. This was in Cottacachi. The man in the last photo had limped in with a cane but sure didn’t need it as he danced with the locals.

Blessings and talk with you soon.
