Yesterday was uneventful and was spent mostly at the airport in Bogota. Samuel flew back to NZ and I am now on my own. 


It´s 7:00am.  I am in Ecuador at Mariana Gonzalez´s home on a hill overlooking Quito City.  Mariana´s children, Maria Jose and Jean-Pierre, busy themselves to get ready for school. Jean Pierre is about 9 or 10 and does not wish to comb his hair or his hair to be combed.  Mariana´s daughter, Maria Jose (13), is calm and relaxed.  I think these two children will teach me a good deal of Spanish.  Mariana´s house is nice and it has a hot shower, which I am greatful for, as on the Coast the showers are coldish. There is also a dutch couple staying here.  They are both about 6 10 tall.  She is also about 3´ wide and is sick.  I hope I don’t catch something as I can´t afford to be sick again. They are both well travelled and are nice.  I am quite a distance from the city centre. I am not sure if my Spanish classes start today or not.
