I have had all the best intentions of faithfully posting, but somehow, time seemed to fly faster than I had intended. Guess the old adage “time flies when you’re having fun “ is true. So too is the fact that time moves faster the older you get.
Seems that time has really flown as it is now Almost March. What happened to January? So I guess a little catch up is in order. Husband had to have unexpected surgery for massive infection, that, thankfully is past and he is 100%. The doctors and hospitals here in Ecuador are fantastic and the healthcare is better than I could have hoped for. Doctors here care about their patients, do not rush them out of the office after five minutes and still make house calls! Hospital bill here included the bill of three specialists, all rooms are private rooms,they fixed a bed for me, total was $4500. In States the bill would not have included any of the doctors, private room extra and I could not have stayed in the room and bill would have been over $100,000.
My husband and I are now volunteer teachers teaching Ecuadorian children and adults English at Crea tu Espacio. I teach children 3-9 and he has teens. It is our way of giving back to the wonderful community that has welcomed us.
It is not easy to learn English and I have a bigger understanding of what they are going through as we are learning Spanish which is not easy when you are seniors. We are determined to succeed.
I am currently in rehearsal for a play scheduled to be performed in April entitled “Kitchen Witches.” Which is so much fun. If you are in Cuenca, let me know and I will provide you with dates and such. We have traveled to some new area, but will provide more on that later.
Wishing you a happy life filled with the love and laughter of family and friends.
