I'm in Guayaquil, Ecuador!
My plane touched ground at 5:00pm Ecuador-time (an hour behind all of you on the East coast) and the passengers erupted in clapping. I love it. I also love the fact that all of these women stood up to get their luggage with perfectly curled hair after a 6 and 1/2 hour flight. When we left JFK, these same women had bright blue curlers stuck to their scalp. Arrival in Guayaquil = beauty queens. Interesting.
So I got here and Nikki picked me up from the airport in her new car! It's a cute 98 Chevy something SUV. It's stick shift, and, thanks to Jonny's car, I am prepared to take over the wheel if there's ever a need! That's right! I can drive stick! I'm very proud. But actually, now that I think about it, there are pretty many hills around Guayaquil, and I'm NOT confident stopping and starting on hills yet. K, so Nikki brought me back to her house and then I got the grand tour of my new place. It was not finished on Tuesday but it was finished today! I'll give you some before/after shots...
But now, I better get going. I'm going to shower off my grime (it's pretty hot) and head out to a Last Supper dinner at the Block 6 church. I'll take MY new house keys and be on my way :) Thanks for reading! Happy Easter! Jesus died so that you can be forgiven from your sins, and rose again 3 days later! Celebrate!
