Meeting new folks has been just so rewarding for Joe and I. People we would probably never have had the opportunity to know, have come into our lives because of this blog. Liz and Bill are a great example. Looking for a retirement spot with open hearts and eyes has led them to Ecuador’s coast. On Sunday they drove up from Manta to spend the day with us. Of course, you know if we have a chance, we will be taking you to Viviana’s, one of our favorite restaurants.
Several other Expat couples came by and were introduced including John and Mary who joined us for lunch, Bethany and Larry, Keith and Becky, Lou and Mary who had family visiting, Tio, as well as Libby and Jerri. This gave Liz and Bill an idea of the expat community in this area. After a great lunch we took them on a short sightseeing trip around town and then they were off to be sure to get to Manta before nightfall.
I hope your visit was as expected and that the balance of your time in Ecuador is wonderful.
