The First Day of our Second Year...

Had a few items to pass along, as we contemplated the beginning of our second year...


Most importantly, The constitution vote was over 75% YES...so Ecuador will now begin to pass along benefits, education, and land and mineral reform that will benefit all the people...not just the super rich...not a bad idea...


Next...I took delivery on my new desk...I had the same artisan who made our custom windows and doors make me a just the right size desk...It cost just a few bucks more than the paste board prefab ones that are covered with plastic, and are sold at Ace--to say I was impressed is to put it mildly...


I tend to fill every space on my desk with stacks of paper, so I ordered one that would force me to organize as I go...(ho, ho)


Then, off to the Casa Blanca for dinner to celebrate our one year anniversary.  It was a really fun night, kinda cool, so not too many tourists, but it was a chance to see all the local freaks doing their thing.  Hector was thrilled when we told him that we are beginning our second year, and a magically a huge shot glass filled with expensive rum appeared next to Rox's rum and cokes...lots of toasting all around...

The food was good as usual--I switched back to my first favorite dish of arroz con camarones (rice and shrimp with a bunch of spices and saffron, too), and Rox continued to love her calamari apanado (fried, breaded squid with fried rice and salad).  She looked for 35 years for this dish to be done right again, after we discovered it in the Canary Islands in the 70's. 

I was trying to load a picture of us celebrating, but all I got was a box with a little red X, so I tried another pic below...it worked fine, so now I don't know why the other won't load, but I liked the other pic of the baby llama and mommy, so I will leave it up...

You can't keep a good gal down--Rox has been up on the high ladder painting the rafters in the living room the last two days, and they look great!!! Kudos...
