Running, cycling and grocery cart racing

Got our photo in a local sports magazine at the finish of the half marathon. Translation goes something like: Ramon and Carla were happy to finish the race by trading places with their rapidly aging father who could no longer keep up with the rest of the field. "We chucked him in the chariot, gave him a soother to suck on so he'd stop whinning and pushed him into the finish."
The Vogel family stayed with us for a week. They are cycling from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, all of the Panam highway. If their twin 11 year old boys are successful, they will be in the Guinness world book of records for the youngest to have done so.

Ramon finally fell of his bike...swerved at high speed going downhill and fell on his face. Would have been much worse without his helment! The fat lip lastest 3 days.
Cart racing in the grocery store! Look out shoppers!
Another Ecuadorian painting.

Thank you so much for putting up with us! We really, truly appreciate your hospitality and will always have fond memories of Quito and the British School!
