About Me

In October, 1997, my husband Mark and I, decided to move to Ecuador. We settled in Cuenca, the third largest city. It is nestled in a valley surrounded by the Andes Mountain range. It has been an amazing aventure.

El Oriente

El Oriente is the jungle here in Ecuador and since this week was a holiday (Good Friday) we had the oportunity to get out of town with some dear friends and get lost for a couple of days. The family we stayed with are the parents of our spiritual daughter Diana. Here are some pictures of our adventure.

The orchids were in bloom. These were all along the road.

Our lodgings. This is the home of the Cando family. They are the only witnesses in the area. The closest Kingdom Hall is an hour away. So, at times the meetings are held here.

Common entertainment when you have no T.V. or video games. SING!

One of the many meals we shared together.

This is Zapote. It is a delicious fruit that grows on huge trees. We harvested these in the morning for breakfast.

Chonta and Quince. Both abundant in the area. Tasty too.

This is the only way to survive the jungle. Keep cool in the river. Another option...eat lots of popscicles!

Our home away from home.
