New Horizons

Good day, everyone!  I hope you are all excellent.  Actually, I know you are excellent and I wish you a day of realizing your excellence. Just as I wrote that salutation to you, I paused for a moment wondering whether it is really necessary to greet someone reading a blog.  Most of you I think […]

Peru Vacation — Part 2, Cusco

Well, after five days making friends in Lima, I set off by myself to Cusco.  To be honest, while I was in Lima making the plans for the rest of my trip I very nearly just decided to buy an earlier ticket home to Quito; not because I didn’t like Peru, but just because I […]

Peru Vacation — Part 1, Lima

Taking a vacation from my life-vacation #1 — Medellin

Well, I have crossed another important threshold in my adjusting-to-life-abroad process, which was going on vacation and coming back home to Quito.  I spent nine days in three Colombian cities – Medellin, Cartagena, and Bogotá – for my vacation.  I have a lot to write so I’m going to do one blog for each city.
