As you can see, we celebrated Ricardo´s birthday with first a cake at school for everyone and then a delicious dinner at our house. Both Yolanda and I cooked using her new grill and made some beautiful works of art. We have both enjoyed cooking together.

Most interesting was the caves and ruins near Sigsig called Chobshi. There is proof of people having lived in these caves about 10,000 years ago as well as more recent ruins of Canari people from about 1600. It is clear when visiting many of these ruins that there are probably many more that have not been uncovered.

This week we have had some computer problems and luckily it has been fixed but now everything is in spanish and the keyboard has some limitations such as the fact that I cannot make a dash or close parenthesis. I can, however make ¡ and ¿
We are off to Banos, Quito and Mindo beginning on Saturday so stay tuned for more adventures.
