A Little Get-together with our Friends from the North...

We had been away from Cuenca for several months and were anxious to see our friends again, so we threw a little party...

Make of this what you will, but every one of them was from Canada!!!  Probably, just a coincidence...

Here are a couple of shots taken by Holly (you remember her as the gracious host of the Christmas Party for Gringos)...my camera chose this occasion to decide not to flash when needed...

I haven't a clue about what the subject was here...and I don't fish...      

    

 

  

Now you may notice that both of the puppies featured in the last entry are here again, well, that is because four of the eight people here, are obnoxious new puppy owners, who take them everywhere...(and we love it!!!)...

The two doggies continued their nonstop play and tussle, and it took Coquita a full day of just lying around the house to regain her energy...

It was a lot of fun...and very instructive...Since most of us are new to Cuenca, it is always great to hear of the latest find, of a new bakery, restaurant, ground coffee emporium, auto parts stores(or gasoline alley-thanks Brian), or some wonderful scenic area that had escaped us previously...like orchid farms...

You may notice that Ramiro was at the party, and that we had featured him and his son and relatives in a previous entry where we got together at our place on the Coast...Now, it's true that he is Ecuadorian, but he lived in Canada since the age of 14, and he has now just returned in the last six months.

Here is a shot of Ramiro and Amanda, whom we hope to get to know better in the coming months...

 

 

Rox served her shrimp-stuffed chicken breasts with Hollandaise sauce--with her famous rice pilaf dish on the side...good vibes from all...as evidenced by clean plates all around and a number of Oohs and aahs...

We all had a great time...and are planning to do it again on Gringo Night at Zoe's Restaurant, where they are all looking forward to meeting Richard and Nancy.  My brother, Rich and his wife Nancy, just sold their ranch in Oregon, and are "coming on down"...mucho mas on that subject in the coming days...

 

 Just had to put in a little blurry shot that I took of Brian and Holly...since she took all the other pics...
