Life continues to careen toward the Center in all its fierce beauty, and I'm holding on for dear life, mostly enjoying the ride.
I decided to post a few more miscellaneous photos for no particular reason, other than the fact that I'll be able enjoy the record of them many moons from now, and perhaps they will bring a smile to your face as well.
My very precocious and lovely teenage god daughter, Amrita, who displays with great flourish *all* the qualities of adolescence
A couple more photos of Adelaida from our hike this week (Amrita's engaging, bright mom -- no wonder Amrita's the way she is LOL)
Travelers from Oregon who arrived from San Agustin, Colombia and styed a few days before continuing their journey...old friends of Adelaida and German (Adelaida's partner, Amrita's dad, who is currently in San Agustin, Colombia)
Amrita, Adelaida and Donald examining the delicious lunch that we're about to eat, prepared for us by two of the young travelers. They're on the patio of the rustic home I normally stay in out in the country with Adelaida and Amrita
Imbabura Volcano (15,190'), for which the northern province I sojourn in is named. I took this photo one early morning from the terraza of the cottage I'm staying in while I cat sit. Can you see the famous heart which nature carved out of the far right side just above the shadow?
Speaking of the kitties --
Mother Suzie, foreground, and son Moonboy
Moonboy crawling through the window...the way they go in and out of the house
The back gardens (for some reason I didn't get any shots of the front gardens, different and also very lovely) that Suzie and Moonboy play in around the cottage (Cheryl is quite the gardener (I've been enjoying harvesting kale, her only vegetable among all the flowers) --
"Lemon tree very pretty...."
A nice spot for morning coffee (or up on the terraza)
I paid $2.25 for this fruit, each piece much larger than it appears in the photo -- three sweet papayas, three lucious mangoes, and one succulent avocado --
